DOMAINE MICHEL GIRARD SANCERRE SILEX 2017
If ever there was a wine that tasted of the soil in which it was grown, this is it! Philippe Girards Silex Sancerre 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!!
This wine was made by Philippe Girard, Michel Girards son. Normally Michel and Philippe would blend Silex into Sauvignon Blanc from other terroirs in Sancerre, but Philippe believed this cuvée had such a dazzling purity and finesse that he decided to bottle it solely as Silex.
