"Named after the steep slopes that back the Bourgeois winery, this powerful, concentrated wine shows both wonderful white and yellow fruits and a mineral character that gives a superb tension. Packed with fruit and impressively textured, it can still age. Drink from 2017. -Roger Voss"

WINE
2013 Bourgeois La Côte des Monts Damnés
Henri Bourgeois

100% Sauvignon Blanc from vines averaging 35- to 45-years-old

La Côte des Monts Damnés is a very steep south and south-west facing slope in Chavignol composed of Kimmeridgian marl (a soil made up of fossilized seashells and clay). Dating back to the 11th century, noblemen would outbid one another just to possess a small parcel. This terroir gives roundness, deepness and a great longevity to the wines.

During the harvest, only the very ripest grapes are hand-picked and carefully brought to the cellar where they are gently pressed to release their aromas. The juice is left to settle naturally for a couple of days and fermented, in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks. The wine is then matured on its fine lees between 6 to 8 months before bottling.
