About the winemaker

The Bourgeois family have been wine-makers in Sancerre for ten generations. Jancis Robinson MW in the Oxford Wine Companion describes Henri Bourgeois as “meticulous growers, producing the best of Sancerre”. Andrew Jefford describes Henri Bourgeois as a “high quality Sancerre house that is run with deafening energy” in his book, The New France.

Put simply, Henri Bourgeois is consistently one of the best growers in Sancerre; they make beautiful wines that are highly awarded. The wittily titled Petit Bourgeois misses appellation status by a gnat’s whisker. This belt-tightening faux-Sancerre has undeniable typicity. La Vigne Blanche comes from vines grown on slopes separating the village of Chavignol from Sancerre, the terroir being an amalgam of clay and limestone chalk. Oak aged in barrel for five months on the fine lees, La Vigne Blanche is vinous with herbaceous notes of elderflower and ivy as well as a hint of kiwi fruit.
