Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Cote des Monts Damnes
Terroir: Kimmeridgian marls La Côte des Monts Damnés is a very steep south and south-west facing slope in Chavignol composed of Kimmeridgian marl (a soil made up of fossilized seashells and clay). Since the 11th century, noblemen would outbid one another just to possess a small parcel. The delicate tropical fruit aromas (a proof of ripe Sauvignon grapes) and clean mineral and fruity palate testify to La Côte des Monts Damnés' pedigree as an exceptional wine from one of the finest slopes in the Sancerre appellation. Served at 10-12°C, this very concentrated wine expresses its strong personality. With three to five years of bottle-aging, the wine gains roundness, richness and complexity.
