Domaine Gitton is incredibly old-school, and yet, in its time it was actually pioneering. Back in the 1950s, the Sancerrois refused to plant on Silex (shale) soils, insisting that only Kimmeridgian or Cailotte soils could produce top quality Sauvignon Blanc. The Gitton family saw something that the others did not, and in 1959 they planted Sauvignon Blanc vines in the silex fields in the area. The vineyard became known as Galinot.
