Henri Bourgeois, 2013 Bourgeois Les Baronnes Blanc

"The lime-green 2013 Sancerre Les Baronnes is a modern classic of the region and a good example to demonstrate the polished aromatic yet authentic, pure and elegant style of Henri Bourgeois’ wines. Sourced from chalky clay soils of the hills separating Sancerre from Chavignol this medium-bodied, juicy yet minerally structured and zesty Sauvignon from 20-to 40-year-old vines offers attractive white fruit flavors intertwined with piquant citrus aromas and dusty chalk flavors. This is a very pleasant, well-balanced, already accessible and stimulating Sancerre of good intensity and quality with lovely citrus flavors also in the finish and aftertaste."
–October 2014, Stephan Reinhardt

"While herbaceous, this wine also has ripe tropical fruits that bring out a richer, early drinking side. It's bone-dry and crisp, the apricot fruits balanced by intense citrus. Concentrated and very fruity, it can be drunk now."
–Oct 2014

2013 Bourgeois Les Baronnes Blanc
Henri Bourgeois

100% Sauvignon Blanc

“Les Baronnes” comes from the hills and ridges separating the village of Chavignol from Sancerre. These sites are composed of clay and limestone chalk (65% clay and 35% chalk). In order to preserve and develop the aromatic potential, this wine is fermented then matured on its fine lees for 5 months in stainless steel tanks.
