Sancerre Bourgeois Cuvée d’Antan, 100% Sauvignon Blanc, Biodynamic Vineyard, barrel aged, delicious. Sancerre Cuvee d'Antan is made is from 70 year old vines on a single vineyard with Silex (flinty) soil, made in the old style from vines on south-facing slopes. Viticulture is biodynamic, grapes are harvested by hand and after pressing and maceration the wine is left in old wooden barrels for eighteen months with constant 'batonnage'. Racking is done after the full moon. The style is very generous: the wine fills the mouth with layer after layer of creamy fruit, a touch of 'breadiness' from the lees and the terroir notes of truffle and warm stone.

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.
