Petit Bourgeois Sauvignon Blanc Henri Sancerre France 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Blassgelb, grünliche Reflexe. Pampelmuse, Granny Smith und Passionsfrucht in der einnehmenden Nase, sehr intensiv. Im Gaumen wiederum viel exotische Frucht, von einer exzellenten Fruchtsüsse begleitet, jahrgangstypisch recht opulent, frisch-fruchtiger Abgang.

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

Henri Bourgeois Les Baronnes Sancerre is lightly golden in color and has complex and layered nose of fruits and herbs. On the palate it is a well balanced and fruity sauvignon blanc with flavors of kiwi, green apple, gooseberry and grapefruit with hints of fresh thyme and sage with a excellent finish. Enjoy with goat cheese and crackers, cucumber salad or ceviche.

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.
