100% Sauvignon Blanc
"La Bourgeoise" is made from old Sauvignon vines growing on flinty slopes first worked by the monks of Saint Satur. The old vines of Domaine Henri Bourgeois offer a distinct character with notes as aromatically diverse and complex as the rugged terrain from which they came.
A portion of the wine is fermented in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks (70%) and the other portion in French oak barrels from the famous Tronçais forest (30%). Patiently aged for 7-8 months on its fine lees in the oak barrel with periodic hand stirring of the lees ("batonnage"), La Bourgeoise is only bottled after achieving one year of tank and barrel maturation. This prestigious selection will continue to evolve for 10 to 12 years.
