Sancerre Girard

Sancerre Girard
A ripe and generous style of Sancerre with a real depth of fruit; the crunchy, herbaceous aromatic notes often found in Sauvignon Blanc have been skilfully restrained, allowing fruity layers of green apples and lemons to show through.

Product Info


Terroir plays such an important role at this estate. The Girards are fortunate enough to be able to blend grapes from each of Sancerre’s three key soil types, Terres Blanches (limestone), Caillottes (chalky limestone) and Silex (flint). The grapes are hand-picked and gently pressed, fermented at 18°C by indigenous yeasts in stainless steel vats – all to preserve natural aromas, elegance and complexity. The final blend brings together the different elements of the three terroirs to create a balanced, complete wine.

The wine comes from Verdigny in the heart of goats cheese country so is ideal with a soft, tangy ‘crottin’. Also great with delicate flat fish in a caper sauce.
