2019 Sancerre Blanc (Girard & Fils, Domaine Michel)

Domaine Michel Girard & Fils, Sancerre Blanc, Loire Valley, France 2019

100% Sauvignon Blanc

RICH & RIPE, LIGHT MINERAL, SAVORY HERBAL

Winemaker Philippe Girard says this about his wine, "pungent fresh grassy aromas mingle with riper citrus-style fruits, rounder and fuller in the mouth but nevertheless finishing with a pure intensity and zippiness that you'd expect in classy Sancerre. Sauvignon Blanc at its best!" We couldn't agree more. That light citrus tropical thing he has going on here is due to the blending of four parcels, each with their own qualities. The sum is truly greater than their parts. A wonderful value and very classic in style.

Serving Suggestion: Goat cheeses, especially those from the Loire Valley or our domestic versions from Looking Glass Dairy or Prodigal Farm.

2019 Sancerre Rosé (Girard & Fils, Domaine Michel)

Domaine Michel Girard & Fils, Sancerre Rosé, Loire Valley, France 2019

100% Pinot Noir

TANGY STRAWBERRY, HAUNTING MINERALITY, HERBACEOUS UNDERCURRENTS

Pinot Noir is what we might call the other grape of Sancerre. For very few of us does the appellation's name evoke thoughts of the regal red grape, but its presence in Sancerre predates that of the region's contemporary star, Sauvignon Blanc. While the reds are a rarity (accounting for significantly less than 20% of the region's production), the rosés are even more seldom-encountered. This one refreshes and enchants with bright, mouthwateringly strawberryish fruit, pronounced chalky mineral, and a faint reminiscence of the "petrol" character often associated with great colder climate whites.

Serving Suggestion: Gravlax w/ papaya salad & lime. Smoked trout paté on toasted pumpernickel w/ alfalfa sprouts & horseradish.
