Region: Sancerre, France
Grape Type: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
- This cuvee is sourced from four plots of very old organically farmed vines that sit on flinty soil.
- These specific plots were worked by monks for centuries, the monks called them “Les Bourgeoises,” which is the reason for the name here.
- If you are looking for a deep, powerful, flinty example of Sauvignon it is hard to find something more compelling than this.
This wine with its gun-flint aromas and spicy bouquet is subtly wooded, rich in fruit, full-bodied, well balanced, and very reminiscent of the Sauvignon flower and grape. The richness and intensity of the flavor linger long and harmoniously on the palate. This prestigious selection has excellent bottle maturation potential and will continue to evolve for 10 to 12 years.
