Henri Bourgeois Sancerre Les Baronnes 2015
Wine EnthusiastFrom vines between 20 and 40 years old, this is a ripe, intense wine with great acidity. A good mineral texture enhances the white fruits, apricots and pineapple. The aftertaste is crisp and tight. Keep until 2017 for the wine to be at its best.
Wine SpectatorA high-pitched style, with talc and thyme notes leading the way for tangy gooseberry and jicama flavors. The long finish has a bony, minerally feel. Drink now through 2020. 7,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Sancerre les Baronnes opens very flinty on the nose and displays a pretty intense fruit. Round and mouth-filling, this is a piquant and grippy Sancerre with aromatic Sauvignon favors (gooseberries). Very attractive but lacks the personality of the other HB wines.
