    THE STORY: Domaine Michel Girard comprises of 12 hectares which is made up of 30 parcels of vineyards where the average age of vines is 15 years. Terroir plays such an important role in this estate where they are fortunate to have plantings on the three key soil structures of Sancerre, namely 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 whole wine.
