From his 27 hectares in Sancerre, Pouilly Fume and the Côteaux du Giennois, Pascal Gitton crafts a tantalizing selection of vins de terroirs. A real favorite is the classically styled Les Belles Dames. This trenchant Sauvignon Blanc is produced from selected vines grown on the silex soils of the 5 hectare lieu-dit – Les Belles Dames. The wine is aged for 9-10 months in oak barrels – (not new!) The wine possesses mouth-wateringly ripe and flinty, zesty fruit flavors along with racy acidity and breathtaking delineation. This is an exceptionally elegant and harmonious Sancerre with lovely purity of fruit and a distinctive steely minerality.
