Sancerre Silex Francois Philippe Girard

French Wines > Loire White
Sancerre is a famous Loire white Sauvignon Blanc appellation located on the left bank of the Loire river. Its fourteen communes are widely dispersed, covering nearly 3,000 ha over vertiginous valleys at up to 350 metres above sea level and three distinct soil types: `silex', a white flint found round Sancerre and Menetreol in particular giving perfume and a fine structure; `terres blanches', a calcareous clay soil that whitens as it dries (widely distributed), delivering a full fruity richness; and `caillottes', a (Portlandian?) soil brimming with large limestones, imparting both power and verve, as found in Sancerre, Chavignol and Buť.
