Domaine Michel Girard Sancerre – Loire Valley
Their 12 hectare estate is made up of 30 parcels of vineyard where the average age of vines is 15 years.
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 these different elements and flavours to create a balanced whole wine.
The wine comes from Verdigny, the heart of goats cheese country so ideal to wash down a soft tangy ‘crottin’. Also great with delicate flat white fish, capers or grilled peppers. Nice on its own too.
