Description Build A Case!
Henri Bourgeois is a leading Loire Valley producer specializing in Sauvignon Blanc, based at Chavignol in Sancerre. The portfolio covers red, white and ros wines from Sancerre, and also includes a pair of Pouilly Fum wines.

The estate started in the 1960s with a few hectares in Chavignol. With his sons Rmi and Jean Marie, Henri Bourgeois extended this estate over several villages, and in the 1980s a modern, eco friendly cellar was constructed, later modernized into a gravity fed facility. There are now around 72 hectares (178 acres) of vineyards split among 120 parcels.

Along with the Sancerre wines made from Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, Henri Bourgeois makes Sauvignon Blanc wines from Menetou Salon, Quincy and Coteaux du Giennois, along with Pinot Noir from Menetou Salon and a Pinot Noir Gamay blend from Chateaumeillant. The range also features a Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir ros and a Sauvignon Blanc under the IGP Val de Loire appellation.

Vines are grown using organic fertilisers and using cover crops without weed killers. Individual parcels are picked by hand and rigorously sorted. The wines are matured on fine lees until bottling.

Henri Bourgeois also owns Clos Henri, an organically farmed estate in Marlborough, New Zealand.

TASTING NOTES: This refreshing, very fruity ros will seduce you with its bouquet of ripe red fruits. It's easy to drink, fresh and particularly well balanced in structure and aromas. Enjoy "Les Baronnes" ros well chilled but not too cold about 10degrees C should be enough to conquer your guests!

Older vine Pinot Noir, their flagship ros. Floral with more complexity and heft than the young vines bottling. Classic Sancerre fans will love this.
