Quincy Haute Victoire Henri Bourgeois, 100% Sauvignon Blanc, crisp, lean, grassy, fresh. As quickly as they are harvested the Sauvignon Blanc grapes are pressed and the juice is allowed to settle for 24 hours to clarify naturally. The fermentation is strictly controlled at temperatures of 16 - 19 degrees C. Finally the wine rests on its lees for several months until bottling in April. Henri Bourgeois is a famous name in Sancerre, but his other vineyards are producing delicious crispy wines which make for ideal summer drinking.

Domaine Henri Bourgeois is an acclaimed producer whose wines still exhibit the complexity of the terroir of 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 estate has been in the family for over 10 generations, and they still work with the same ethos and drive for quality and wines which speak of the inimitable terroir of Sancerre. They have several dozen small plots of land which amount to 72 hectares, including some of the very best soils for Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir in the region. There is also a rather lovely story of a famous old oak tree in the village which was struck down by lightning, and then acquired by the Bourgeois family to become the vehicle for their finest grapes.
