Hellgelb, mit goldenen Reflexen. Nobles Bouquet, geprägt von Zitrusfrüchten wie Limetten und Grapefruit, aber auch von einer rassigen Minznote und einem verführerischem Lindenblütenduft unterlegt. Weicher Auftakt, abgelöst von einer homogenen Aromatik an wiederum fein-zitrischer Frucht, Zitronen und Orangenzeste, untermalt von mineralischen Noten, insgesamt sehr rassig und elegant, tolle Länge.

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!


Winemaker's Notes:

Domaine Henri Bourgeois Pouilly Fume 2006.An acclaimed producer whose wines exhibit the complexity of the terroir of Chavignol, being chalky with a touch of gunflint, initially steely, then ripeness in the mouth with a broad array of flavours and wonderful length. Pouilly Fumé has an unusual flavor for a dry white wine: a strong flavor of musk and smoke. When the phylloxera destroyed all the vines 2 centuries ago, vine growers replace them with Sauvignon to create the Pouilly Fumé. Nowadays Pouilly sur Loire makes less than 5% of the production of Pouilly. Pouilly is very close to Sancerre, just on the other side of the river. However both wines are a little bit different. Pouilly Fumé is probably thicker, deeper and has more structure. The oaked Etienne Henri comes from the older vines on the flint clay slopes. Such a method of vinification requires top quality grapes for a successful marriage of wood and wine. A wonderful array of distinct flavours and good with a number of foods or as an aperitif.
