Producer Information

Today Domain Gitton is run by Pascal, his wife Denise and their daughter Chanel.

It's origins lie with Pascal's Grandmother who had a few vines to make wine to sell in her shop and bar. Pascal's father assiduously bought vineyard plots to build it to today's 33 hectares. A substantial part is on silex soils that were traditionally shunned by some growers because they were hard to plant. Today such terroir is valued for producing exceptional wines.

The average age of the vines is approaching 50 years - giving the potentiel for flavoursome wines. Grapes from each vineyard are vinified apart to maintain the individuality of each wine. Some wines are fermented in large (600 litre) oak barrels, others in stainless steel. Winemaking is "low intervention" in style. Fermentation is by natural indigenous yeasts, not the cultured yeasts favoured by most producers. The wine is left to mature in tank or barrel to mature slowly before bottling.

The age of the vines and winemaking style produces exceptional wines with rich complex flavours. A traditional rather than modern style of Sancerre that we love.

Production

The age of the vines and winemaking style produces exceptional wines with rich complex flavours. A traditional rather than modern style of Sancerre that we love.

This Sancerre is picked from Sauvignon Blanc vines grown exclusively on silex (flint) soils.

Tasting Notes

Elegant, full nose with citrus notes. Delightfully full in the mouth with the complexity that comes from using natural yeasts. Mineral notes derived from the silex/flinty soil. A Sancerre of real character that reflects the "silex" (flint) nature of the vineyard.

Delicious on its own. A great accompaniment for fish or white meat in a creamy sauce and mild goats cheese.
