La Croix au Garde – white

A Sauvignon classic

Since 1982, our estate has been cultivating 4 hectares of Sancerre in the village of Montigny. The ‘Caillotes’ type of pebbly clay and li- mestone soil produces beautifully fine wines with great regularity. An aromatic wine that mixes citrus and floral notes underpinned by a lovely minerality.
