The 2019 Henri Bourgeois Les Baronnes Sancerre is typical of the Sancerre appellation and the Domaine Henri Bourgeois style. Subtle yet powerful, its persistence and harmony find their origin in the exposition and quality of the terroir. Crisp and fruity, this wine has some lime, apple, and gunflint aromas balanced by ripe tropical and yellow orchard fruits.

"This sports an enticing mandarin orange note along with yellow apple and peach flavors, driven by vibrant acidity. Offers a long verbena streak through the finish, where a hint of cardamom lingers. Drink now through 2024. 5,000 cases imported." -AZ, 11/15/20

"This tight, mineral and green-fruit-driven wine is still young while having an attractive potential. Tangy apple and green-plum flavors are lifted by nervy, steely acidity into a crisp texture. Drink the wine from 2021." -RV, 12/1/20
