Henri Bourgeois Sancerre Etienne Henri 2018


In Stock

“The 2018 Sancerre Blanc Etienne Henri is from the older vines on the flinty-clay slopes in Saint-Satur. Fermented and aged in new and one-year-old barriques, this homage to Etienne “Henri” Bourgeois offers an intense and spicy/oaky bouquet with a ripe and concentrated (lemon) fruit aroma intertwined with mineral notes. Full-bodied, refined and elegant on the palate, this is a salty, pure and mouth-tackling Sancerre with a long, intense and structured finish with lingering salinity. Definitely a wine to cellar rather than to aerate. 14% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted in March 2022. Drink: 2024-2034. 93 points
