Sancerre 2015 Philippe Girard
The Domaine Philippe Girard dates back to the time of the French Revolution but wine only started to be produced there commercially in the 1960s. Before that only the Girard family got to enjoy the distinctive Sauvignon Blanc grown in the flinty soils of Verdigny, one of the most renowned wine villages of Sancerre. Today's generation owns 16 acres of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir and the siblings know each parcel in their vineyard very distinctly. In Wine Spectator's report on the 2015 Harvest, Pascal Jolivet said "2015 is looking like a really great vintage...there is good balance, power, concentration of aromas, intensity and minerality." The wine is made in using the most modern methods with temperature controlled steel tanks for fermentation to retain the bright flavors. The wine is aged on the lees for 4 months giving it richness and complexity. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 91 points saying "With lees aging, this wine has gained richness, balancing crisp acidity with ripe flavors. Aromatic and with a flinty texture and citrus flavors, the wine is concentrated. The finish shows more of the herbal Sauvignon character."

How would you describe the acidity?
A shopper on May 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for the question! A pleasant, embracing acidity is definitely present in this wine and it fills out nicely on the palate leading almost to a softness, Cheers!
