The French Cellar Your sommelier at home

Sancerre Galinot, Domaine Pascal Gitton, 2009

An excellent Sancerre, a beautiful Sauvignon perfectly grown, harvested and vinified! Congratulations Marcel Gitton! Directly from the vineyards. Exclusively on The French Cellar


Sancerre is an appellation produced in the area of Sancerre in the eastern part of the Loire valley. Almost all of the appellation lies on the left bank of the Loire, opposite Pouilly-Fumé (not Pouilly-Fuissé which is in Burgundy!)


Created after the 2nd World War (1945) by Marcel Gitton from 0.5 hectare of vines, vineyards Gitton Père & Fils cover 27 hectares distributed among the best terroirs in the communes of Sancerre and Ménétréol. Marcel and Pascal Gitton were the pioneers of the expression of the diversity of the Sancerre vineyards. Their son, Pascal Gitton, is now in charge of the vineyard


100% Sauvignon
