- Michel Girard, with sons Philippe and Benoit, produce outstanding wines from 50 acres of estate vines planted in all 3 of Sancerre's distinct soil types; silex, caillottes and terre blanches. Their annual release is a deft blend of selections from all of their sites, fermented with native yeasts, fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks to preserve and present the full expression of their mineral-rich terroir.
