Winemaker Notes

The delicate tropical fruit aromas (a proof of ripe Sauvignon grapes) and clean mineral and fruity palate testify to La Cote des Monts Damnes' pedigree as an exceptional wine from one of the finest slopes in the Sancerre appellation. This very concentrated wine expresses its strong personality. With three to five years of bottle-aging, the wine gains roundness, richness and complexity.

Just say, "Bite me." You just gotta love a wine that says this! The 2012 Henri Bourgeois La Cote des Damnes Sancerre is simple outstanding. Doesn't wait for you to ponder over it, this wine just comes out with chalk, dried herbs and minerals to take your teeth away. Let's just call this one "Al Dente." I'll order up a few dozen raw oysters and we can just sit on the porch and drink this pinpoint Sancerre!

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Henri Bourgeois' 2012 Sancerre La Cote des Monts Damnes could be considered as perfume of the famous Coteau. It is less cumbersome than other Monts Damnes but offers all the flavors that makes this Chavignol Cru so special. It is a mixture of crushed white rocks with almost floral citrus flavors intertwined with the tropical flavor of a fully ripe and juicy pineapple and a refreshing mineral depth. All this gives this wine a precision that makes you sniffing above the glass for a while before you raise it to your mouth. This is a mouthful of rich, intense, elegant, fresh and well-balanced Sancerre that is full-bodied and juicy but by no means heavy, loud or saturating. The lingering salinity in combination with the ripe acidity is very appetizing and gives this complex wine a very good length. Henri Bourgois' La Côte des Monts Damnés is definitely the wine to start with when you want to discover one of the most fascinating terroirs of the Sancerre appellation.

For 10 generations, the Bourgeois family has been cultivating vines in the heart of the Sancerre region. They have established their domain in the well-known village of Chavignol reputed for its wines (produced from vines grown on steep and well-exposed slopes).

Since 1950, Henri Bourgeois and his sons have enlarged their Sauvignon Blanc vineyards, which are ideally situated on the best slopes of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume. They put their hearts and souls into growing their vines and producing their wines.
