Description

Henri Bourgeois Sancerre d’Antan Sancerre Blanc 2017

A stone and lime decoction. Henri Bourgeois Sancerre d’Antan has a surprising charisma and great purity.

Straw yellow colour. A burst of lime and flint aromas with a hint of verbena. The medium-bodied palate has great concentration and is both full and fine. Fresh touch of grapefruit and lime citrus flavours with a hint of green apples, almonds and passionfruit. The highlight is its minerality, which also gives it great length.

100% Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes come from Saint-Satur’s silex soils, a vineyard first planted in 1936. The soil here is predominantly flinty and the vines have low yields. To obtain the most beautiful grapes, everything is tailored to respect the terroir (from the use of organic fertilisers only to grass covers).

As a tribute to traditional methods, Sancerre “d’Antan” is bottled without fining nor filtration. Fermentation occurs in 4, 5 and 6 year-old oak barrels. The wine then matures on very fine lees. Two rackings are carried out according to the lunar cycle before bottling.

Ageing potential: drink now or within 6–8 years from vintage.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

 Old vines on flint soil have yielded this particularly concentrated, complex wine. The acidity and texture contrast with green-fruit and gooseberry flavors, suggesting the wine will age well. There is great depth to this wine that will be at its best from 2022.

 A broader style, yet the acidity ripples through, giving it a laser-like focus for a brief moment, before exuding notes of lemon curd, nectarine, gooseberry and honeysuckle. It glides beautifully in perfect harmony, with a bright future ahead. Drink now through 2027.

From Saint-Satur’s silex soils, Bourgeois’s 2017 Sancerre d’Antan opens with a deep, subtle and nuanced yet intense and aromatic bouquet of flowers, herbs, ripe fruits and characteristic flint stone notes. Full-bodied, intense and highly refined on the palate, with ripe and beautifully bitter citrus fruit aromas, this is a full-bodied, dense, fine and complex Sancerre with a sustainable finish. The 2017 drinks perfect today but will hold its class for several years. Tasted in February 2021.
