Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Henri Bourgeois Sancerre d'Antan 2020

Henri Bourgeois Sancerre d'Antan 2020 is a captivating expression of the Sancerre appellation in France's Loire Valley. This exceptional wine offers a sensory journey that begins with a delicate, pale straw color in the glass, hinting at its elegance. On the nose, it unveils a bouquet of intense aromas, dominated by vibrant citrus notes of grapefruit and lemon zest, interwoven with subtle hints of green apple and freshly cut grass. These aromatics are further complemented by a mineral undertone that evokes the region's renowned flinty soils.

Upon the first sip, Sancerre d'Antan 2020 reveals its true finesse. The palate is alive with a lively acidity that dances alongside the citrus fruits, creating a refreshing and zesty profile. The wine's bright acidity is harmoniously balanced by a medium body and a creamy texture, which adds depth to the overall experience. As the wine lingers on the finish, it leaves a lasting impression of minerality and a touch of salinity, reminiscent of the terroir from which it originates.

Critic Ratings

James Suckling - Rated 94:
Creamy, mineral and pretty varietal at the same time, mixing brioche with gooseberries, lime and flint. Flavorful on the palate with a medium to full body, all very linear. Fresh and a tad saline followed by a lengthy, pure finish.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 92:
A palate-coating, beautifully chiseled wine, with lovely purity to the flavors of nectarine, lemon and lime zest. Nearly viscous in texture and broad on the palate, this ripples with racy acidity and wet stone accents. A powerful wine, with nice cut through the finish.
