Henri Bourgeois, "Petit Bourgeois" Sauvignon Blanc 1997
A VdP de Jardin de France classification, but the grapes come from just outside the Sancerre AC, and the wine is made by a first class Sancerre producer. A really lovely Sauvignon, with very fresh citrus and peach fruit on the nose and palate, a pleasantly nettley aroma and very good balance. It straddles New and Old World styles, with ripe, almost tropical fruit and well defined acicity. Good length too. A fine example of a classy, yet cheap and easy-to-drink wine. (10/98)
