Across a mosaic of several dozen plots of land spread across 72 hectares, the Famille Bourgeois illustrates all the nuances and reliefs of the flavours of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. It imagines its wines and tells their stories starting from their roots, which go deep into the heart of three types of soil present in the vineyard: clay-limestone, which gives rise to fresh, fruity vintages; Kimmeridgian marls, the memories of fossilised shells from the Jurassic Era that give intense flavours of exotic fruits and a superb structure; flint, which initiates elegant wines with smoky, roasted notes and minerality of great finesse. Those fresh terroirs of the Loire give rise to wines with a great mineral feeling. Thick, serrated leaves and roots that know how to sneak through the heart of soils, Sauvignon Blanc stands out by its natural acidity. Sauvignon Blanc is transcended by its terroir. With robes that range from white gold to straw yellow, the wines develop floral, fruity flavours that are also taut and firm, with minerality forming the backbone.
