Sancerre, Henri Bourgeois, France
From grapes harvested on the Kimmeridgian marls of the Monts Damnes, slopes so steep that they are called “cursed”. A grace and flavour wine that will age and age.
Clean mineral (flinty) and fruity palate with terrific elegance it really is everything you want from a premium Sancerre. Brought to fruition by Henri Bourgeois over 50 years ago, the vineyards lie on some of the most rugged hillside terrains, offering the best exposures in the Loire Valley.
The family is forever striving to perfect their craft, they remain committed to Henri’s original viticultural vision of showcasing the purity of the Sauvignon Blanc.
