      ABOUT THIS WINE

      As a tribute to the old methods, we make our Sancerre “D’Antan” without neither fining nor filtration. Very small yield, fermentation in 4, 5 and 6 year-old oak barrels followed by maturation on very fine lees. Only two rackings are carried out (according to the lunar cycle) before bottling.

      ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

      For 10 generations, the Bourgeois family has committed efforts and emotions to working with vines, creating wines, and sharing their personalities. For our ancestors, the vine was already a passion into which they threw themselves, in addition to growing necessary subsistence crops and keeping a few goats.

      However, the main figure of the turning point in the family’s history was Henri Bourgeois. From cultivating two hectares on the slopes of Chavignol, he took the audacious step in the 1950’s of concentrating on his vines in an area that was, until then, unknown. This is where wines of high quality were born and to which he gave his name.

      His sons, Jean-Marie and Rémi, joined him in the 1960’s and continued the adventure. They discovered new terroirs, bought land and developed partnerships with other Sancerre families. In time, they turned themselves into ambassadors for Sancerre’s reputation – first in France and then abroad. Today, Arnaud, Lionel, and Jean-Christophe Bourgeois are just as much the heirs of those men as the initiators of the future of the vines and wines of the domain. A family working together, expressing their vivacity and their generous personalities through its wines; “Famille Bourgeois” is now a family name synonymous with Sancerre.
