The Gitton Père et Fils estate is located around the village of "Ménétréol-sous-Sancerre" on the banks of the Canal Latéral à la Loire. The vineyards, covering an area of 33 hectares, are 80% sauvignon and 20% pinot noir, planted on small plots around the village. These numerous plots now make it possible to offer a dozen different White Sancerre wines.
The history of the Gitton vineyards dates back to 1945 when Marcel and Huguette Gitton bought half a hectare of vines in the Sancerre region to provide for the family bistro. Little by little, Marcel, a winemaking worker who was passionate about vines, extended his vineyard by acquiring small plots around his village.
Thanks to this diversity of terroirs, Marcel quickly chose to vinify the parcel by separating all the vintages by locality, according to the exposure, rootstock and terroirs. This family tradition is now carried on by his son Pascal and his wife Denise, with the help of their daughter Chanel.
Our parcels "En creux" and "Larrey", both on the same hillside and on the same terroir, were already mentioned by Abbé Poupard in 1777 as two of the four best white Sancerre wines in the history of Sancerre.
