K&L Notes

Winemaker Anthony Girard grew up in his family's Sancerre winery, but spent a number of years learning about wine production all over the world before returning home to continue working with Sauvignon Blanc. While continuing to help with the namesake Girard label, Anthony wanted to create his own project on the side and eventually purchased a small plot of pristine real estate near the town of Récy with primo Sancerre limestone soils. After acquiring the vines he was given a large key as a symbolic gesture of new ownership, or a "clef du récit," which became the name of the estate. While the heavy limestone content helps the fruit to retain bright acidity, a portion of the vineyard is planted in flintier grounds, which adds minerality to the finish. Anthony's wines have been renowned for their freshness and zip and are in true Sancerre fashion.

    Winemaker Anthony Girard always sticks the landing when it comes to making great Sancerre. His Clef du Recit is full of Meyer lemon, ruby grapefruit and chalky mineral notes. The 2019 vintage adds more weight and generosity but focused acidity make this deft and balanced. Absolutely superb!

    One of my favorite direct import Sancerre producers is back and with another stunning vintage! The 2019 once again returns with brilliant acidity and chalky minerality, as we have all come to know and love of Sancerre sauvignon blanc. Yet 2019 seems to have a lot more finesse than the last vintage. I often found myself tasting more complex citrus notes sip after sip, and before i knew it, the bottle was already gone within 30-45 minutes. If that doesn't scream a fantastic bottle of wine to you, I don't know what does.
