Henri Bourgeois : La Bourgeoise 2010

SKU :F817/10 Loire - Sancerre - Blanc - 13° - Détails
  • Parker/WA : 87

La Bourgeoise 2010 du domaine Henri Bourgeois est un vin né sur des parcelles de purs silex. Ce vin, élevé un à deux ans en bouteille avant de quitter la cave de la propriété pour sa commercialisation, offre des notes aromatiques diverses et singulières. Ce Sancerre s'affiche dans une richesse de fleurs et de raisins aux arômes originels du Sauvignon si parfait dans sa partie culturale la plus septentrionale. La bouche est vive, précise et affiche crescendo en milieu de bouche concentration et puissance. Une intensité toutefois maîtrisée. La Bourgeoise 2010 est un vin d'une belle architecture ciselée et précise, au potentiel de garde éloquentá: 10 à 12 ans.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
From primarily old vines on a steep, flinty slope in St. Satur - a portion turned toward the Loire Canal, but most southwest facing - the Bourgeois 2010 Sancerre La Bourgeoise resided as usual in one-third each new, second, and third year barrels of 300-liter capacity and local origin. Bottled late last year, it was not due to have gone on sale until this summer. Brightly lemony and sleek, subtly waxy on the palate, this wine's pronounced acidity surprises me considering its having as usual for this cuvee been raised entirely in 300-liter barrels, one-third of which were new. But while this is bracingly persistent (albeit a touch warm) - I was disappointed by a lack of complexity, with hints of lanolin and resin from barrel (here blessedly not overdone) the only significant accents to the lemon. Based on my limited experience, I would not hold this in hope that something more interesting will emerge or that high acid today will prove connected to harmonious vivacity some years from now. (A 2009 tasted alongside was heat-free but rather stewed and graceless, its finish unfocussed and a tad drying. A 2006 was dank, and after a flicker of mid-palate juiciness finished drying and otherwise marked by its wood - not recommendable. The 2011 was not yet at a stage where an approximation to the assemblage or hence a judgment about the wine's quality could be rendered.)
