DESCRIPTION
  • Domaine La Clef du Récit is the exciting brand behind young and ambitious winemaker Anthony Girard. The property is located in Sancerre, in a tiny village called Récy, at the very eastern edge of the Loire Valley, France. The name La Clef du Récit ('The key of the story') roots back to the moment when Anthony was given a large key by the local press during the opening ceremony of his 8.5 ha property. Ever since this moment Anthony reigns winery and vineyards with a charm, enthusiasm and authenticity that are certainly displayed in his wines.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Ever since Anthony took over the Estate in 2012, he managed his vines according to organic principles, proving that the respectful handling of land and environment will reward you with pure expression of terroir. Two thirds of his vineyards are planted on Caillottes soils, which consist mainly of gravel and limestone and contribute to freshness and fruitiness in the wines; the rest of his vines are grown on flinty soils, which offer great minerality. Treatment in the winery is fairly simple and reduced to a minimum (usually élevage in oak is avoided) to allow the wines their purest varietal expression.

    TASTING NOTE

    Crisp and refreshing with underlying aromatics of tropical fruits,
    lemon and lime. The refined minerality giving the wine a more linear
    look and allowing a balanced palate weight and mouthwatering
    length.
