Tasting Notes

Gitton was established in 1945 with an eye toward producing traditional, single-vineyard Sancerre and has never wavered in its commitment to excellent wines. From one acre at their founding, they've grown to nearly 60 of the best in the region. All of their wines are estate grown and vinified with native yeasts. The Galinots is hand harvested from nearly 60-year-old vines in Sparnacian flint soil. There is something of virtue-in-necessity to the vineyard’s story. Planted in 1959, this hillside site is less than a hectare of flinty, silex soil, which makes this plot far more difficult to work than the softer, chalky limestone soil downslope. It was, however, all that was affordable when Pascal Gitton’s father, Marcel, was initially looking to expand the domaine’s holdings. The extra trouble paid a handsome dividend: the wines from Galinot were the best in the cellar! This is a wine made to develop with bottle age.
