Petit Bourgeois Sauvignon Blanc Henri Sancerre France 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

“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

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

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.

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.
