Domaine des Brosses, established in 1875, lies 10 kilometres south of Sancerre. The Girard family modernised the winery and vineyards when they bought the estate in 1973. Nicolas Girard has now taken over his father's 11 hectare estate and together with his brother Anthony, is making fresh, modern and aromatic wines. Tasting notes: "Bright and pale golden. A fresh, citrus palate with herbaceous notes of hay and nettle, a crisp acidity and textbook minerality. An elegant finish with the typical purity and refreshment of an excellent Sancerre."
