Sancerre, La Vigne Blanch, Henri Bourgeois, France
La Vigne Blanche is the entry-level Sancerre of illustrious 11th generation Sancerre producer, Domaine Henri Bourgeois. Sourced from younger vines of around 15-30 years of age, it is aged in barrels for five months on the fine lees to give additional complexity and texture.
This is an exceptionally easy-going but deeply flavourful Sauvignon Blanc fitting for almost any occasion. It is great to drink by itself as a refreshing summer aperitif, but it would also pair incredibly well with fresh shellfish.
