Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Bourgeoise 2016

Regular price $47.30 Sale

This cuvee is sourced from four plots of very old organically farmed vines that sit on flinty soil. These specific plots were worked by monks for centuries, the monks called them “Les Bourgeoises,” which is the reason for the name here. If you are looking for a deep, powerful, flinty example of Sauvignon it is hard to find something more compelling than this.

Tasting notes

This wine with its gun-flint aromas and spicy bouquet is subtly oaked, rich in fruit, full-bodied, well balanced. The richness and intensity of the flavor linger long and harmoniously on the palate. This excellent wine has ongoing maturation potential and will continue to evolve for 10 to 12 years. 93 Points - Wine Spectator
There is oceans of mediocre sancerre on the market.....this ain't one of them! This is a top example of terroir driven sauvignon blanc and well worth the price.
