Henri Bourgeois Sancerre Rouges Les Baronnes
£22.50
This wine with its characteristic connotations of red fruits (cherries, morellos, strawberries...) is subtly woody. On the palate, it reveals good roundness and a light, pleasant astringency (tannins from the grapes as well as the oak barrels) assuring good aging for 8 to 10 years.

Description

Details

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 Henir 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.

This Sancerre rouge is created from Pinot Noir vines growing on chalky-clay soils.
