?La Bourgeoise? is made from old Sauvignon vines growing on flinty slopes first worked by the monks of Saint-Satur. Like its name, the elder vines of the Domaine Henri Bourgeois offer a strong character with aromatic notes as various as its personality is singular.
Wine maker notes
For 10 generations, our family has devoted its passion and values to Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir to craft wines of unique expression. Each member of our family, Jean-Marie Bourgeois, Arnaud, Lionel & Jean-Christophe, brings its knowledge and expertise to our wine Estate. Rooted to our beloved village of Chavignol, on the greatest terroirs of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume, we work on a mosaic of many vine plots. Each plot is isolated and worked in respect of its origin to reveal, in the most precise and true way, the expression of its terroir - either Kimmerigdian marls, Flint or Limestone Clay soils. Curious and of a pioneering spirit, our family established in 2000, our organically farmed Clos Henri vineyard, in Marlborough, New Zealand. Here, too, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir blossom on the great terroirs of this region. Our Hotel Restaurant, La Cote des Monts Damnes (translated as ?The Damned Hill?), managed by Jean-Marc Bourgeois the elder son of Jean-Marie, welcomes you in the heart of the Sancerre region, only two hours from Paris and invites you discover cooking that reinvents tradional local cuisine. His hotel will allow you a nice and peaceful stay at the edge of the Loire river.
