This wine remained on its fine lees for several months to add weight to the palate and round the finish. Richly textured but with crisp acidity and textbook minerality.
Pale golden in colour, this wine has ripe citrus aromas paired with herbaceous notes. Its structured yet balanced palate reveals the consecrated minerality and freshness of an excellent Sancerre.
Domaine des Brosses was established in 1875 and lies 10 kilometres south of the town of Sancerre. The Girard family modernised the winery and vineyards when they bought the estate in 1973. Nicolas Girard has now taken over his father's 11 hectare estate and together with his brother Anthony, is making wines that are fresh, modern and aromatic. Both the brothers have travelled extensively throughout the wine world and have used the knowledge and experience acquired to underpin the style of their classic Sancerre.
