Henri Bourgeois Sancerre Les Baronnes 2021

  • v88


Available for:
"Les Baronnes" is typical of the Sancerre appellation and the Domaine Henri Bourgeois style. Subtle yet powerful, its persistence and harmony find their origin in the exposition and quality of the terroir. Crispy, and fruity this wine has some lime, apple and gunflint aromas balanced by ripe tropical and yellow orchard fruits. A delight at the beginning of the meal, "Les Baronnes" is also an excellent companion to fish dishes such as Scallops with mango emulsion or Roll of bass in curry. The famous Crottin de Chavignol goat cheese, produced in the same region, is the perfect match.

The 2021 Les Baronnes is a young wine, which has benefitted from the lack of fruit in the 2021 vintage; the maker's single vineyard cuvees from similar soil (clay-limestone) has been added to ensure quantities for this key blend. It's a piquant, nettle, pineapple and bright citrus-flavored wine. the 2021 already shows a tenderness through the palate while the acidity provides a bright line that pierces the core and sings through on the finish. A cool, Sauvignon expression. It tings like a bell when you reach your floor in a lift.
