A Sojourn Down the Loire

Bourgois Copy
Henri Bourgeois
 
Sancerre is renowned for white wine and is one of the world’s benchmarks for Sauvignon Blanc. However, the Sancerre experience is incomplete without savoring the two red varietals allowed in the region: Pinot Noir and Pineau D’Aunis. One of our favorite producers in Sancerre, Famille Bourgeois, produces extraordinary wines from all three of these varietals featured in this splendid collection.
The Big Family
Famille Bourgeois, now in its 11th generation, covers 72 hectares of the esteemed Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé appellations, located in the most desired of Sancerre locations, Chavignol. And yes, Chavignol goat cheese and Sancerre Blanc are a perfect food pairing. Today, Arnaud, Lionel, and Jean-Christophe Bourgeois are just as much the stewards of that history as the initiators of the future of the vines and wines of the house. Though the family is forever striving to perfect their craft, they remain committed to Henri’s original vision of showcasing the purity of the varietals and the unique beauty of the Loire Valley.
 
This “Perfect for Summer” 6-Pack special collection includes two bottles each of:
 
 
Blanc
 
2016 Bourgeois ‘La Bourgeoise’ Sancerre Blanc
"La Bourgeoise" is made from old Sauvignon vines growing on flinty slopes first worked by the monks of Saint Satur. The old vines of Domaine Henri Bourgeois offer a distinct character with notes as aromatically diverse and complex as the rugged terrain from which they came.

Sancerre Rouge
 
2016 Bourgeois ‘Les Baronnes’ Sancerre Rouge
The beautiful Sancerre Rouge is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes from 40 year old vines. Following fermentation the wine spends up to 10 months in Tronçais oak barrels. On the nose, black cherries and vanilla with a hint of mint. On the palate, medium-bodied and slightly spicy with savory notes and balanced acidity.

Rosé
 
2016 Bourgeois ‘Le Vert-Galant’ Pineau d’Aunis Rosé
An excellent Rosé from the Coteaux du Vendômois, the northernmost appellation of the Loire Valley. Made in a vin-gris style, this wine is beautiful, crisp and ideal to imbibe on a warm summer day.
