Regular price $37.99 Sale

For 10 generations, the Bourgeois family has been cultivating vines in the heart of the Sancerre region. They have established their domain in the well-known village of Chavignol reputed for its wines (produced from vines grown on steep and well-exposed slopes). The near-vertical slope of the Monts Damnés produces wines that have delicate tropical fruit (a proof of ripe Sauvignon grapes) and vibrant citrus aromas. The palate confirms this fruitiness and brings a nice and clean mineral note. Served at 10-12°C, this very concentrated wine expresses its strong personality. With three to five years of bottle-aging, the wine gains roundness, richness and complexity. This wine can be enjoyed with a great variety of dishes: Asian recipes, white meats like veal escalope stuffed with prawns and marjoram. As for cheese, a Munster would do a great match. 93 Points - Wine Spectator Very taut in feel, with tangy verbena, asparagus, lime pith, flint and gooseberry notes that are compressed into a piercing and pure filament. The long, rapierlike finish ends with an echo of chalk dust. Drink now through 2022.
