Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2012 Product #28083 (In Stock)
Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2012 Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2012

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 of this young 2012.  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.

Clos Henri Sauvignon Blanc Petit Clos 2012 Product #27164 (In Stock)
Clos Henri Sauvignon Blanc Petit Clos 2012 Clos Henri Sauvignon Blanc Petit Clos 2012

What happens with one of Sancerre's best winemakers tries his hand at New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc?  Complexity, length and sophistication to go with the classic New Zealand fruit!  Plenty of grapefruit, passion fruit, and gooseberry, with a touch of mineral and citrus rind. Juicy, fresh, and very long on the lemon, lime, and grapefruit finish.

Henri Bourgeois Pouilly-Fume La Porte De l'Abbaye 2012 Product #27959 (In Stock)
Henri Bourgeois Pouilly-Fume La Porte De l'Abbaye 2012 Henri Bourgeois Pouilly-Fume La Porte De l'Abbaye 2012

A dead on, right-down the middle, example, this 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Pouilly-Fume delivers big aromas of white peach, straw, and white grapefruit.  Bright, loaded with flinty mineral and smoke, and very long, it delivers more citrus, peach, and fresh almond flavors and a long, smoky/flinty, finish.  A textbook Pouilly-Fume for fish and cheeses but rich enough to just sip, too.

Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Porte Du Caillou 2012 Product #27343 (In Stock)
Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Porte Du Caillou 2012 Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Porte Du Caillou 2012

Even more precise and focused in 2012 than in previous vintages, but still with generous fresh apple, tangy citrus, and enough flesh to enjoy by itself as well as with food.  As in much of France, yields were lower than usual, so this may not last long!

"Shows serious cut, with bony chive, flint and gooseberry notes, featuring a pure, stony finish."Wine Spectator 89 points
