La Clef du Récit Sancerre 12pk 2016
Domaine La Clef du Récit is the exciting brand behind young and ambitious winemaker Anthony Girard. The property is located in Sancerre, in a tiny village called Récy, at the very eastern edge of the Loire Valley, France. Anthony used to work at his family's estate before deciding to find his feet in wineries across the globe. Upon his return 5 years later he was offered the rare opportunity to acquire a small 8.5 ha estate and pursue the lifelong dream of making wine true to his 'sancerroises origins'. The name La Clef du Récit ('The key of the story') roots back to the moment when he was given a large key by the local press during the opening ceremony as a symbolic gesture for the new ownership. Ever since this moment Anthony reigns winery and vineyards with a charm, enthusiasm and authenticity that are certainly displayed in his wines. Read More
Passion, love and work are the key words of Anthony Girard every day. This young winemaker puts all his energy into the vineyard and the winery with a very precise vinification to extract the best of its sauvignon blanc. An elegant white sancerre, with its crystalline robe, offers a mineral and taut mouth. Tangy aromas with spicy notes, a hint of ginger, leave a crisp and delicate impression on the finish.
