Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2013 Product #28614 (In Stock)
Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2013 Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2013

Basically a “baby Sancerre”, this exciting young Sauvignon Blanc is grown on the same chalky slate soils you’ll find across Sancerre from 10-40 year-old vines, fermented in stainless steel and allowed to rest 3 months on the fine lees.  The vineyard is located just outside the legal boundary of Sancerre, but the flavors make you feel right in the middle!

As in the past, generous, fresh, aromas of fresh flowers, just cut grass, white grapefruit, and a hint of wet stones burst from the glass.  Then you’ll find a tad more richness and zest to the crisp citrus and green apple fruit, tangy gooseberry, and fresh grass.  As the refreshing acidity wells up to make your mouth water, a bit of Sancerre’s trademark “gun flint” character shows underneath the juicy bright fruit.  There’s a wonderful rich/brisk, sweet/sour contrast in this wine that will delight and fascinate with every sip.  Served cold, it’s thirst quenching and refreshing.  Let it warm up a touch and it’s layered, complex, and a fantastic match for seafood, fresh vegetables, and – of course – goat cheese.

Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Cote Des Monts Damnes 2012 Product #29309 (In Stock)
Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Cote Des Monts Damnes 2012 Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Cote Des Monts Damnes 2012

From the most famous Cru in Sancerre, this is brilliant Sauvignon Blanc.  Cut and crisp but with enough richness to avoid austerity, the layered flavors of citrus, pineapple, and crushed stone sail on and on and on.

"Henri Bourgeois’ 2012 Sancerre La Côte des Monts Damnés could be considered as perfume of the famous Coteau. It is less cumbersome than other Monts Damnés but offers all the flavors that makes this Chavignol Cru so special. It is a mixture of crushed white rocks with almost floral citrus flavors intertwined with the tropical flavor of a fully ripe and juicy pineapple and a refreshing mineral depth. All this gives this wine a precision that makes you sniffing above the glass for a while before you raise it to your mouth. This is a mouthful of rich, intense, elegant, fresh and well-balanced Sancerre that is full-bodied and juicy but by no means heavy, loud or saturating. The lingering salinity in combination with the ripe acidity is very appetizing and gives this complex wine a very good length. Henri Bourgois’ La Côte des Monts Damnés is definitely the wine to start with when you want to discover one of the most fascinating terroirs of the Sancerre appellation."Wine Advocate 92 points
