The Bourgeois family has been making wine for 10 generations. The winery is located in the village of Chavignol, near Sancerre on the Loire River. These grapes are grown just outside the area designated as Sancerre, and while the vineyard sites may not be elite, the attention to detail, from growing the grapes to producing the wine, are all top notch. This shows the classic Loire Sauvignon Blanc character of citrus, apple, and hints of minerality. This is a great change of pace from Sauvignon Blanc from other parts of the world. This is an excellent partner for seafood or alone as an aperitif.
