About The Wine
This is pretty much as good as Sauvignon Blanc can get. An exquisite, minerally, electric white wine where the soil talks louder than the variety - you may be hard-pressed to pick this as Sauvignon.
Monts-Damnes, the damned slopes, is one of the legendary vineyards of Sancerre, steep-sided, old vines, and full of chalky limestone. Extensive oak ageing reveals itself in length and texture rather than any flavour impact.
Stonefruits and spice, a crunching citrus line, touch of herbal leafiness, and a fine, pristine finish of chalk dust and supreme fruit concentration./p>
About Gerard Boulay
Gérard Boulay is one of the towering figures of Sancerre.
His family has grown grapes and made wine in the tiny village of Chavignol since the 1300s. His wines are among the most respected in the region, showcasing the great terroir of Chavignol in its most pure form. As is the case with all great vignerons, his focus is put squarely on the vineyard, he hand-harvests, farms without herbicides or pesticides, and works his plots with horse over machine.
