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. It shows hints of grapefruit, lime zest and flintiness on the nose. Notes of peach, citrus, white flowers, and a pleasant minerality comes through on the palate with zesty acidity. This Sancerre is perfect with fish dishes and poultry and best of all it's a great value!
