Domaine Girard 'La Garenne', Sancerre, France 2021
Alain Girard comes from several generations of winemakers in the tiny village of Chaudoux, located a few miles northwest of the town of Sancerre and directly north of the famous town of Chavignol. His Sancerre is everything one hopes for when thinking about the region- it is bright, lively, pleasantly aromatic, has zippy acidity but low astringency. It is a wonderful food wine that is as versatile as it is easy to drink.
Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
Soil: Gravel, flint, and clay
