Food pairing

Because of its bracing acidity, Sancerre is quite versatile. Perhaps the most famous food and wine pairings is Goat Cheese and Sancerre. This pairing works as Goat Cheese is tart and earthy, but quite plain. When you add Sancerre to the mix, it imparts a acidic and mineral driven citrus bite, that brings out herbal flavors in the cheese that you have never noticed before. Also excellent with asparagus, white fish, roasted turkey, pork chops and crab cakes.


For ten generations now the Bourgeois family has devoted its passion and values to Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, becoming Sancerre’s most well-known producer. The company is now led by the current generation of the family – Jean-Marie and Remi Bourgeois. The winery and family base is the village of Chavignol, and Domaine holdings can be found on a mosaic of plots throughout Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. Each plot is isolated and worked in respect of its origin to reveal, in the most precise and true way, the expression of its terroir, whether we are talking Kimmeridgian marls, flint, or limestone clay soils. We see this expressed in a dizzying array of bottlings, many of which are amongst the most sought after of their kind in the Loire each year.


During the harvest, only the very ripest grapes are hand-picked and carefully brought to the cellar where they are gently pressed to release their aromas. The must is left to settle naturally for a couple of days and fermented, in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks. The wine is then matured on its fine lees between 9 to 10 months before bottling.


La Côte des Monts Damnés is an extremely steep south and south-west facing slope in the village of Chavignol composed of Kimmeridgian marls (a soil made up of fossilized seashells and clay). This unique terroir is arguably the world’s most sensational piece of land when it comes to the production of Sauvignon Blanc with depth, power, and aging potential. Only 12 wineries own vines on this slope, and Henri Bourgeois owns more of it than anyone and in a prime location straddling the top of the hill.
