Henri Bourgeois Sancerre Jadis 2019

$55

A concentrated white, with peach blossoms, verbena and honeysuckle layered with oyster shell minerality. Boasts brioche and a kiss of vanilla that add roundness, with pithy grapefruit and dried thyme bringing freshness on the finish. Salty and concentrated, this is a ripe, lush style with great balance. Drink now through 2030. 1,500 cases made, 250 cases imported.

Summary

Grape

Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc is historically connected to two French winemaking regions: the Loire Valley and Bordeaux. It most likely originated in the former, which today still makes single-variety expressions to global acclaim. In Bordeaux, where the grape's roots also run centuries deep, winemakers blend Sauvignon Blanc with Sémillon and small percentages of Muscadelle for dry whites and, in the Sauternes and Barsac appellations, world-renowned botrytized dessert wines.
