Description

Henri Bourgeois Etienne Henri Sancerre Blanc 2016

A powerful and complex expression of Sancerre. Henri Bourgeois Etienne Henri is surprising by its ability to integrate woody substances, which brings a great complexity. Ripe citrus fruit aromas with a hint of vanilla tones and woody spices. These aromas accompany a roundness and amazing length on the palate. Powerful and complex. The subtle wood focuses on enriching the fruit, bringing out its steel and citrus character.

100% Sauvignon Blanc. The “Etienne Henri” cuvée comes from older vines on flinty-clay slopes in Saint-Satur. The terroir gives a great strength and concentration to the wines. To obtain the most beautiful grapes, everything is made to respect the terroir (such as the sole use organic fertilisers and grass covers.

Thanks to his love for wood, their ancestor Etienne (known as Henri) was the first in Sancerre to make a wine in new oak barrels. Such a method of vinification requires top-quality grapes for a successful marriage of wood and wine. Alcoholic fermentation is exclusively in oak barrels that are either new, 1-, or 2-years-old. Following this, the wine matures in barrels for 12 months.

Ageing potential: drink now or within 8–12 years from vintage.

    Prominent grapefruit notes upfront, with a sharp acidic ending but surprisingly pleasant, which continues to linger with a hint of lemon bitterness. Try rolling the tongue to experience a tour of complex mineral flavors!
