Henri Bourgeois Sancerre les Bonnes Bouches 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Sancerre vineyards extend from the banks of the Loire River. The naturally drained hillsides attain slopes of 30% to 60%. This combination of natural conditions creates a unique terroir that is ideal for the Sauvignon grape variety, known as "blanc fumé" in the Nièvre area. Our diversity of terroirs is reflected in the diversity of our wine styles. The final touch - the wine maker's "savoir-faire" - is the signature of its authenticity.

Domaine Henri Bourgeois:
White Sancerre LE CHÊNE SAINT-ETIENNE Brilliant golden yellow, it glisten by his sheen. The nose is powerful and very aromatic with notes of very ripe yellow fruits (even tropical fruits), vanilla and spices! The palate is round, full and powerful yet well-balanced.

White Sancerre LE CHÊNE SAINT-ETIENNE Brilliant golden yellow, it glisten by his sheen. The nose is powerful and very aromatic with notes of very ripe yellow fruits (even tropical fruits), vanilla and spices! The palate is round, full and powerful yet well-balanced. Serve this wine with great fish dishes or, even better, a “Côte de Veau Crémeuse aux Langoustines et Marjolaine” (veal cutlet with a langoustine and marjoram cream sauce). Red Sancerre LE CHÊNE SAINT-ETIENNE Bright garnet with red tints. A genuine basket of red and black fruits with hints of game and spice. On the palate, its ampleness and structure are surprising and the tannins are very well assimilated. Serve it with a beef tournedos with chanterelle mushroom even a few small games with red fruits. The trees of the “district of Saint-Etienne” have a fine and dense texture, owing to their slow and steady growth. Its characteristics were more especially imprinted in the Saint-Etienne oak tree due to its great age. In contact with this unique wood, the wine started a slow oxidation through the staves. The tannins given by the “oak” are of great finesse, become united in the greatest harmony to the precious liquid and awards wooden flavours of an unequalled softness. Read less

Der Grande Réserve von Henri Bourgeois ist ein grosser Klassiker aus dem Sancerre. Verführt mit seinen intensiveren Aromen von Zitrusfrüchten und elganten Stachelbeernoten wie die Sirenen auf der Odyssee. Seine Mineralität und seine zarten Rauchnoten sind tiefer und verwoben. Knusprig auf der Zunge, lang und frisch im Gaumen, zu jeder Zeit delikat. Eine Gaumenfreude!

Hellgelb, grünliche Reflexe. Köstlich duftende Holunderblüten und rosa Grapefruit, auch eine Spur Granny Smith, sehr harmonisch. Gehaltvoller, ausgesprochen reicher Gaumen, geprägt von Agrumen und gelber Steinfrucht, auch etwas grüner Spargel ist auszumachen; feines Frucht-Säure-Spiel; mineralisch geprägtes Finale von toller Länge.
