Sancerre Blanc “LA VIGNE BLANCHE” 2017

HENRI BOURGEOIS



METICULOUS GROWERS, PRODUCING THE BEST SANCERRE

The 2010 vintage of La Vigne Blanche was recently given 16.5/20 by Jancis Robinson and we think the 2014 vintage is just as good, she also describes Henri Bourgeois as “meticulous growers, producing the best of Sancerre”. Andrew Jefford describes Henri Bourgeois as a “high quality Sancerre house that is run with deafening energy” in his book, The New France. Put simply, Henri Bourgeois is consistently one of the best growers in Sancerre; they make beautiful wines that are highly awarded.

La Vigne Blanche comes from vines grown on slopes between the villages of Chavignol and Sancerre. It is oak aged in barrel to give a softer, more herbaceous style of Sauvignon. This is an exceptional wine and a real crowd pleaser.
