2018 Gerard Boulay "Chavignol" Sancerre

Sumptuous Springtime Sancerre!
Chavignol, the Grand Cru of Sancerre!

Nothing says Springtime like Sancerre!

And, nothing embodies "refreshing" like Gerard Boulay's 2018 Chavignol Sancerre.

With its refreshing lemon-lime notes, we can think of few Sancerres that match the quality of Boulay's Sauvignon Blanc.

What is it about the Chavignol subregion of Sancerre that warrants such fervor?

Perched on the northern tip of Sancerre are the white limestone slopes of Chavignol, the finest Sauvignon Blanc growing region in the world. Often compared to the Grand Cru vineyards of Burgundy for its limestone-based soil, Chavignol is a field of chalky-white stone that produces refined and immensely complex whites.

Sipping this succulent Sauvignon Blanc is like being hit with a refreshing summer breeze!

With uncanny freshness and bright citrus minerality, Boulay's Sancerre displays classic gooseberry and lime zest aromas which mingle with notes of minty herb, stone, almond and white flowers. It has a solid core of grapefruit, mandarin orange, lime and wildflowers. It is one of the best Sancerres being made today!

Enjoy all Spring and Summer long. With its mineral infused personality, it will easily age for another 5 years!

$32.95 per bottle / $395.40 per case
