Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2016 Product #32523 (In Stock)
Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2016 Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2016

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!

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.

Branger Muscadet Les Fils De Gras Mouton 2016 Product #32819 (In Stock)
Branger Muscadet Les Fils De Gras Mouton 2016 Branger Muscadet Les Fils De Gras Mouton 2016

The world's most under-valued great white wine could just be Muscadet - the bone-dry, stony, green-fruited Loire Valley white that folks keep confusing with sweet/perfumy "Muscat."  The grape is actually Melon de Bourgogne and it gives a tart, green apple and lime zest, wine that needs a few months resting on the lees to develop matching richness and depth.  This one's delicious for now-2025 (really!) and crazy cheap for the quality.

Dom De Villargeau Coteaux Du Giennois 2016 Product #32589 (In Stock)
Dom De Villargeau Coteaux Du Giennois 2016 Dom De Villargeau Coteaux Du Giennois 2016

The Coteaux de  Giennois appellation is small - under 200 acres in total - and tends to get lost in the shadow of nearby Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume.  Owned by brothers Fernand and Jean-Francois Thibaut, Villargeau is the top producer in the region and crafts crackling, fresh, Sauvignon Blanc from vines growing on fractured slate and gravel.

You'll find big aromas of mixed citrus - grapefruit, lemon, lime - with a hint of cut grass and flinty stones in the background.  On the palate it's clear, juicy, and fresh, with green grape and white grapefruit flavors getting complexity from the gunflint and smoke notes that made Pouilly-Fume so famous.  Finishes crisp and clean and pulls you back for another sip.

Dom Philippe Gilbert Menetou Salon 2015 Product #33123 (In Stock)
Dom Philippe Gilbert Menetou Salon 2015 Dom Philippe Gilbert Menetou Salon 2015

From an under the radar Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc area, this is ripe, lush, wide open and delicious white wine you'll just want to guzzle.  Yes, there Sauvignon's classic citrus and grass and mineral character, but the wine's really all about round, ripe, juicy stone fruit (peach, apricot) plus glazed apple and a handful of crushed river rock. Great texture and persistence in a wine you can't put down.
