For 10 generations, the Bourgeois family has been cultivating vines in the heart of the Sancerre region on the best slopes. The estate stretches over the famous village of Chavignol known for its goat cheese but also for its wines. The vines for the Les Gonnes Bouches Sancerre are are 20-40 years old planted on chalky/clay soil. It is fermented in stainless steel and spends 5 months oak-aging on its lees preserving its aromatic qualities. This and the use of gravity for each stage of the wine making characterize the quality and style of "Bourgeois". The 2011 (now bottled in screw cap) has aromas of tropical fruit and citrus flavors that are both seductively intense, yet with a subtle, refined elegance. Its persistence and harmony makes your mouth water for another sip. Enjoy as an apertif before the meal or with fish, scallops, or the famous Chavignol goat cheese.
