      Tasting Notes
      La Clef du Recit Sancerre Blanc 2016, 75cl

      Anthony Girard, an endearing and energetic young winemaker, started his own production in 2012 after completing his training at the family estate. Attached to its Sancerre roots, he set up in Récy, a hamlet in the south of the appellation and takes on 8.5 hectares on excellent soils. Two thirds of these are composed of '' caillotes '' (Sancerre limestones) bringing freshness and fruityness to its wine and a third of flint for power and minerality.

      Anthony leads the estate with rigorous work in the vineyard in respect of the soil and the environment to harvest grapes in full maturity, bursting with fruit. Precision is key in the winery, the vinification is carried out masterfully and allows to express sauvignons of great aromatic purity and a remarkable balance.

      Sancerre, the most famous vineyard in the Loire Valley has built its worldwide reputation from its unique soils of limestone, clay and flint, and by its unique varieties that are Sauvignon for whites and Pinot Noir for reds and rosés.

      "Biscuity aromas and a fresh, peachy, vivacious palate. Depth and polish, not too fruit-driven, relying on that flinty edge and an appealingly stony finish.
      95/100 Points."
      (Decanter Sancerre White Panel Tasting, September 2016)
