About the winery:
The Garrault family has been growing grapes in Sancerre for over 10 generations. Based in the village of Verdigny, their vineyards are located on truly privileged terroir. The parcels are all found on high altitude sites (200m – 250m) and on steep slopes that allow the grapes to soak up the shy Loire Valley Sun.  The soils found here are the classic Terres Blanches and Caillotes that bestow laser intense minerality into the wines. The grapes are all hand-harvested and vinified in stainless tanks to preserve the full freshness and zippiness of the wines. Great Sancerre is getting harder to find, and it is families like the Garraults that continue to shun the influx of industry into Sancerre. They simply continue to make wine in the traditional way that reminds us why we fell in love with this hilly region to begin with.

  • 30+ year old vines

“Chalky and nuanced in the glass, the 2022 Rosé Les Grands Monts lifts up with ginger-tinged apple and dried flower aromas. It’s soothingly round yet spicy within. Salty mineral tones add a crunchy sensation as a vivid note of nectarine resonates throughout. This finishes wonderfully fresh yet potent, calling the taster back to the glass as young kiwi notes fade. Very nice”. - Eric Guido (May 2023)
