Henri Bourgeois Sancerre les Barones 2010
“The 2010 Petit Clos Sauvignon Blanc gives pronounced aromas of pink grapefruit, passion fruit and gooseberries with a hint of fresh sage. Medium bodied, it offers very good tropical fruit concentration in the mouth with lively acidity, a suggestion of texture and a long finish. Drink it now through 2013…90.” WA 10/11
Very ripe fruit in this unusally ripe vintage, but still maintains its typicite': grapefruit, minerality, crisp and dry with the pleasant acidity that I love.
Dry fruity wine. Great with pasta
The wine was OK but as for the packaging ... two thumbs down. Three thumbs if I had them!! The foil was armour-plated and took me ten minutes to get into. Once I had managed to bore a small hole I found there was no cork at all - it was only the foil that was holding the liquid in there! As you might imagine I shall not be buying this wine again.
Two and a half glasses
