For Sauvignon Blanc enthusiast, 2014 La Chappelle des Augustins truly conveys the purity of the grape. Domaine Henri Bourgeois' Sancerre stands out for its dual mineral character: on one hand from the limestone subsoil and on the other, flint soil.
This 2014 Loire Valley vintage reveals gold-tinted colour and intense fragrances. The nose opens on nettle, lemon zest, and citrus notes, followed by fruits (kiwi, peach, and litchi) and mineral touches. The attack is forward on the full, strong palate, with lovely underlying tension and minerals. The long finish ends on hints of citrus.
