Single vineyard Sancerre from Henri Bourgeois (Loire valley family growing sauvignon since 1590); tasted with winemaker and grandson of Henri Bourgeois (whose first name was Etienne!); example of soil and barrel use to slightly fill out a mouthful of minerality; more dimension, keep its shape; racked direct to bottle; 50% oak use; single vineyard on clay; 2013 23 euros #loire #sancerre #oak #jadis #singlevineyard

Creamy and tropical but not overly so. I'll be getting more of this.

Sauvignon varietal on the nose, precise and still young. Mouth wathering acidity and under tongue vibrant persistancy makes it special.
