Pascal Gitton is the current scion at the helm of Domaine Gitton. The estate began life as a 1.5-hectare parcel near Ménétréol-sous-Sancerre that his grandmother farmed in addition to running a bistro and épicerie. From these beginnings, the total of the family’s various holdings is now close to 27 hectares. Having grown to 3.5 hectares, the foundational site, whose calcareous soil is known as “Caillottes” locally, contributes the fruit for the Les Montachins bottling.
Citrus dominates the nose, especially lemon, with subtle hints of white flowers and mineral notes. Ripping acidity on the palate, flinty minerality also coming through strong. Wide array of citrus present, predominately lemon and a hint of lime. Finish of fresh herbs, tarragon and chervil in particular.
