Across a mosaic of several dozen plots of land spread across 72 hectares, 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.
