Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Blanc Petit Bourgeois 2008
The delicate tropical fruit aromas (a proof of ripe Sauvignon grapes) and clean mineral and fruity palate testify to Le MD's pedigree as an exceptional wine from one of the finest slopes in the Sancerre appellation. Served at 10-12°c, this very concentrated wine expresses its strong personality. With three to five years of bottle-aging, the wine gains roundness, richness and complexity. Wine and Food: This star enjoys the very finest cuisine! Fish, white meats, cheeses...Why not veal escalope stuffed with Dublin Bay prawns and marjoram? For cheese, munster would be a fine choice.
This was impressive! For $12 out of France, I was floored. Screwcap, zingy sauvignon blanc. Actually, it had all the quintessential characteristics of a good sauvignon that I'm constantly looking for: zingy, grassy, fresh lemon/lime citrus fruit, smooth finish, but acidic enough to balance all the flavors. If you like Kim Crawford or Mud House from New Zealand, this is a nice alternative from a whole other country! Great alone or, like I had it, with fresh pesto sauce. MMM!

External Reviews for Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Blanc Petit Bourgeois
Hellgelb, grünliche Reflexe. Frische Agrumen, Grapefruit, aber auch etwas Ananas in der frischfruchtigen Nase. Weicher Auftakt, abgelöst von einer delikaten Fruchtsüsse, wiederum zitrische Noten, unterstützt von einer guten Frische, aber trotzdem weich fliessend, gute Länge.
