Gerard Boulay ''Monts Damnes'' Sancerre 2018 - Loire Valley, France
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Expect scents of complex botanicals and crushed stone, a silky, deep palate with great precision, shot through with bracing tension and mouth-watering freshness. Perfumed, deep and long, it is the definition of great Chavignol
This family domaine of 9ha located in Chavignol can trace its history back to 1380. The land records for that year mention a Jean Boulay as owner of vineyards in Chavignol. At the time, the Clos de Beaujeu in Chavignol was already known for the quality of its white wine which is remarkable since Sancerre was known as a red wine area until after phylloxera. In the 14th century the Clos de Beaujeu supplied the Cathedral of Bourges with white wine.
