Henri Bourgeois

Henri Bourgeois, Sancerre Le MD 2018

An acclaimed family producer whose wines exhibit the complexity of their vineyard in Chavignol, being chalky with a touch of gunflint, initially steely, then ripening in the mouth with a broad array of flavours and wonderful length. The M.D. is from grapes harvested on the Monts Damnes slopes, so steep that they are called ‘cursed’. A grace and flavour wine that will age gracefully. Since the eleventh century nobleman would try to outbid each other just to possess a small parcel of this prized land.

TASTING NOTES
“Somewhat reductive on the nose, but the palate reveals superb concentration of layered fruit, bold and potent but with precise balance, very long.” – 4 stars (18/20) – Decanter.

REVIEWS & AWARDS

“I have great admiration for this remarkable and dynamic family. Over the past 52 years Jean-Marie Bourgeois has played a huge role in making them Sancerre’s largest producers. They now have 70ha of vines plus an extensive negotiant business producing around one million bottles a year. Despite their size they have been able to maintain their high quality which runs right through the range. The refined and minerally MD is a particular favourite of mine, especially with some bottle age.” – Jim Budd – Wine Travel Guides
