Henri Bourgeois “Petit Bourgeois” Sauvignon Blanc

(Loire Valley, France)

Surdyk's Price

Sold out

 The Bourgeois family has been a fixture in the Loire for ten generations. You’ll find their wines on many restaurant’s lists in town, including Sidebar’s! With that long history of growing Sauvignon Blanc in the famed Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume regions, you can bet that their “Petit Bourgeois” is worth your attention. This “little” bottle gets the same attention and winemaking team as their pricier appellations but is made with grapes sourced from chalk-filled vineyards located throughout the general Loire Valley, instead of one particular sub-region. When Sauvignon Blanc is grown in this type of soil, it produces fresh flavors of citrus, herbs, slate, and almond. It’s clean, crisp, and incredibly drinkable. An excellent partner for goats’ milk cheese, tomato salad, and shrimp risotto, as well as a savvy candidate for your next house white.
