Sancerre Blanc « Cuvee Jadis », Henri Bourgeois, Loire Valley, France 2013
In 1950, the Henri Bourgeois estate, in the village of Sancerre, consisted of 2 hectares. Today, his sons have expanded the Domaine to 65 hectares of vines, situated among the best slopes of Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé in the Loire Valley. Dedication to quality also means separate vinification of individual parcels, gravity feed-based system in the cellars and close monitoring of the wines from the lees to the bottling.
An unfiltered wine of great charisma; very aromatic and concentrated. The bunches of grapes are small and well-compacted. This limits the development of rot and exalts the primacy of terroir. Complex and well-balanced, the Jadis reveals aromas of exotic fruits and honey.At a glance
