We say…..A simply delicious talking, eating, drinking, laughing, sharing wine!  Perfect with food or without.

Domaine Michel Girard Sancerre Silex – if ever there was a wine that tasted of the soil in which it was grown, this is it! Domaine Michel Girard Sancerre Silex opens with a sensational energetic almost crackly nose of gunsmoke, orange oil and earthy stoney notes. The full palate is lively, expressive with pronounced minerality and a long, long finish. Fantastique!!

The estate of Domaine Michel Girard is 12 hectares in the Loire region and is made up of 30 individual parcels of vineyards.  There are 3 different soil structures on the land:- Terres Blanches (clay and limestone), Caillottes (chalky limestone) and Silex (flint).  Traditionally the family have always vinified the grapes from the different areas separately and then used blending of the cuvées to create wines with real complexity and balance.  However, more recently Michel Girrard’s son, Philippe, decided that as the Silex cuvée had such a dazzling purity and finesse of its own they should start bottling it solely as Silex!

The Domaine Michel Girard Sancerre Silex dry white wine is sourced from one particular vineyard of Silex called Jeugny where the average age of the vines is 15 years.  Grapes are hand picked and gently pressed, with fermentation being undertaken in stainless steel tanks.

The resulting Silex wine is a beautiful crisp and dry sauvignon blanc which is a fantastic match for all fish and shellfish as well being a fine wine for drinking on its own.  Our Magnum bottle of Silex, which contains the equivalent of 2 standard sized wine bottles, is stunning and if you close your eyes you can almost imagine you’re sitting in the vineyard in France sipping on your perfect, chilled white wine!  Definitely one for enjoying yourself but if you treat your friends to this they’ll be very happy!

 

All our magnums and jeroboams come securely packaged in a beautiful presentation tube and are supplied with a gift tag. The even bigger bottles are packaged in sturdy wooden boxes and are also supplied with a gift tag.
