Henri Bourgeois "Petit Bourgeois", 2015

13.00

Domaine Henri Bourgeois, now in its 11th generation of the Bourgeois family, covers 72 hectares of the esteemed Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé appellations. Brought to fruition by Henri Bourgeois over 50 years ago, the vineyards lie on some of the most rugged hillside terrains, offering the best exposures in the Loire Valley. Though the family is forever striving to perfect their craft, they remain committed to Henri’s original viticultural vision of showcasing the purity of the Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir grapes and the unique beauty of the Loire Valley.
Growing in a chalky clay soil, these grapes are hand harvested before fermenting in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks and then resting on their lees for 3 months. This imparts a delicious nutty, bread-dough flavor to the wine that complements the continental-climate sauvignon blanc traits. Hints of citrus, apple, and some passionfruit can be found in this wine, with notes reminiscent of the flower from whence the grapes came.
