Henri Bourgeois Sancerre d’Antan Sancerre Blanc

A stone and lime decoction. Henri Bourgeois Sancerre d'Antan has a surprising charisma and great purity.

Straw yellow colour. A burst of lime and flint aromas with a hint of verbena. The medium-bodied palate has great concentration and is both full and fine. Fresh touch of grapefruit and lime citrus flavours with a hint of green apples, almonds and passionfruit. The highlight is its minerality, which also gives it great length.

100% Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes come from Saint-Satur's silex soils, a vineyard first planted in 1936. The soil here is predominantly flinty and the vines have low yields. To obtain the most beautiful grapes, everything is tailored to respect the terroir (from the use of organic fertilisers only to grass covers)

As a tribute to traditional methods, Sancerre “d’Antan” is bottled without fining nor filtration. Fermentation occurs in 4, 5 and 6 year-old oak barrels. The wine then matures on very fine lees. Two rackings are carried out according to the lunar cycle before bottling.
