Half a century ago, Henri Bourgeois cultivated just a few hectares of vines I the heart of Chavignol, a traditional village in the Berry region. His pioneering spirit saw him move away from multi-crop farming and focus his passion into wine-making.
Alongside his sons, Rémi and Jean-Marie, who very soon gained a reputation for discovering marvellous terriors, the vineyard of Henri Bourgeois gradually extended over several villages in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, forming a mosaic of parcels cultivated with meticulous care.
In the mid 80’s, a modern, eco-friendly cellar was built to provide exceptionally good conditions for careful winemaking and wine ageing.
The current generation of the Bourgeois family decided to modernise the facilities by using the advantageous topography of the village to build a gravity-fed winery. Today, the 72 hectares cultivated by the Bourgeois family composes a palatte of 120 parcels.
Delicate nose with aromas of white flesh fruits and citrus, this Sancerre is highlighted by its typicity.
