Domaine Michel Girard Sancerre 'Silex'
This product is currently sold out.
Domaine Michel Girard Sancerre 'Silex', is renowned master winemaker Philippe Girard's wonderfully rich expression of Silex terroir. If ever there was a wine that tasted of the soil in which it was grown, this is it! Philippe Girard's Silex Sancerre opens with a sensational energetic nose of ripe citrus and earthy stoney notes. The full palate is lively, rich & expressive with pronounced minerality and a long, long finish. Fantastique!! We don't often recommend this as big wine glasses usually do the trick, but decant this wine before pouring to release the full potential of this wine. A fantastic match with shellfish, river fish such as trout and goats cheese.
