Henri Bourgeois

Henri Bourgeois Les Baronnes Sancerre

$41

For 10 generations, the name 'Henri Bourgeois' has been synonymous with passionate precision winemaking. The clay and limestone ridges of Chavignol evoke classic grassiness, gooseberry, grapefruit and mineral tones. Try this with scallops, oysters or tuna steaks.

“Les Baronnes” is typical of the Sancerre appellation and the Domaine Henri Bourgeois style. Subtle yet powerful, its persistence and harmony find their origin in the exposition and quality of the terroir. Crispy, and fruity this wine has some lime, apple and gunflint aromas balanced by ripe tropical and yellow orchard fruits.

 Food Pairing A delight at the beginning of the meal, “Les Baronnes” is also an excellent companion to fish dishes such as Scallops with mango emulsion or Roll of bass in curry. The famous Crottin de Chavignol goat cheese, produced in the same region, is the perfect match.
