Description

A precise and aromatic Sancerre wine

The estate

Henri Bourgeois set up his eponymous estate in 1950, when he started working two hectares of vines in the middle of the village of Chavignol, with the ambition of producing quality wines that reveal the great Sancerre terroirs.

Arnaud, Lionel and Jean-Christophe Bourgeois are the third generation to run the estate, whose wines have been united since January 2018 under the name Famille Bourgeois.

The estate draws particular attention, as much for its respect for biodiversity when running the vineyard as for the precision of plot winemaking. In this it is one of the pioneers, ensuring each wine is the most pure expression of each of these great terroirs.

The vineyard

The d’Antan 2019 wine from Famille Bourgeois is a Sancerre wine stemming from a plot planted in 1936 and run by biological agriculture on a flinty terroir.

Winemaking and ageing

Produced according to ancient methods (« d’antan » in French), the grapes are first subjected to a soft pressing. Fermentation takes place in old oak casks. Ageing on fine lees over the course of a year. The wine is only racked twice, in line with moon cycles. An additional two years of ageing after bottling in the estate cellars. No fining or filtration.

Blend

Sauvignon blanc (100%)

Tasting

Colour
Beautifully gold and lustrous in colour.

Nose
The nose entices with scents of lime-blossom and verbena mixed with subtle mineral, flinty notes.

Palate
Well-balanced, the palate develops into scents of grapefruit, almonds, hawthorn blossom and coconut. Its woody expression reveals exotic notes while its minerality provides an enduring finish.

Storage

This Loire wine can be laid down until around 2026 to release all of its aromatic nuances.

To serve

For best tasting, serve between 11 and 13°C.

Food and wine pairings

This white wine is an ideal partner for fish and shellfish but also for white meat, accompanied by mushrooms.
