Additional information

Domaine Michel Girard

Domaine Michel Girard comprises of 12 hectares of vineyards, made up of 30 parcels of vines with an average age of 15 years. Terroir plays an important role at this estate. Michel, Philippe and Benoît Girard's vines are planted on each of Sancerre's three different soil types: Terres Blanches (clay and limestone), Caillottes (chalky limestone) and Silex (flint). The brothers favour judicious blending of the separately-vinified cuvées to create wines with real complexity and balance.

Production

The grapes were 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 of wines from vineyards with different soils brings together their individual elements and flavours to create a balanced, complete wine.
