Domaine Bourgeois is known for its parcel winemaking, at the time, innovative in the region. For 10 generations, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc have been cultivated on the 72 hectares by the Bourgeois family.
The Domaine Henri Bourgeois was established in Chavignol, part of the Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé appellations. In the 2000s, the Bourgeois family expanded their vineyards in Marlborough, New Zealand, and since then offers wine in organic farming. In the 1950s, Henri Bourgeois was seen as one of the pioneer winemakers in the Sancerrois. Helped by his sons from the 1960s, the Henri Bourgeois cellar was able to grow as a family. The acquisition of new plots has also helped to publicise its wines.
At Domaine Bourgeois, the vineyards receive special attention to ensure the proper development of each plot. The grapes are tasted on each of them to ensure optimal maturity and the entire process is carried out in an environmentally friendly manner. Henri Bourgeois has thus passed on values that are, year after year, the guiding thread in the management of the estate and the creation of authentic cuvées in the Loire region. Above all, you must be passionate and perfectionist, have the desire to promote the appellations and terroirs represented by the Domaine Henri Bourgeois.
Even if the family remains modest on this subject, it can be said that it has highlighted the Sancerre appellation and that it sublimes the two grape varieties kings of the Loire Wines: the Sauvignon and Le Pinot. Minerality and freshness dominate the white Sancerre cuvées. The Domaine Bourgeois offers us a beautiful declination of Sauvignon blanc with Le Petit Bourgeois, the Grande Reserve and La Bourgeoise.
The other king variety of the Domaine is Pinot Noir. The cuvée in red Sancerre, Les Bonnes Bouches offers aromas turned towards red berries with a lot of delicacy.
Le Petit Bourgeois offers a nice freshness, a nose with aromas of lemon and cut grass. In mouth, citrus fruits are present and the acidity is very smooth. A pleasant wine, to drink soon to exploit its maximum potential.
Les Bonnes Bouches Sancerre Red is a perfect example of Sancerre wines. Its aromas of red and woody fruits will awaken your curiosity. In the mouth, it has a roundness and sweetness of the most pleasant. So convinced enough to taste it?
