"La Clef du Récit meaning « The Key to the Story » is located in Vinon, 7 km south of Sancerre. The Estate was taken over in 2012 by Anthony Girard, a dynamic young winemaker, after having the opportunity to purchase 15 hectares of first-class vineyards nearby the small village of Récy in the southern part of the appellation. They produce Sancerre, Menetou-Salon and Quincy appellations, respecting the vines and the soils to find the balance reflecting the local terroir. As the second appellation created in France and the first in the Loire Valley, Quincy was the first from the Centre-Loire to obtain AOC status in August 1936."
