The near-vertical slope of the Monts Damnés produces wines that have delicate tropical fruit (a proof of ripe Sauvignon grapes) and vibrant citrus aromas. The palate confirms this fruitiness and brings a nice and clean mineral note. Served at 10-12°C, this very concentrated wine expresses its strong personality. With three to five years of bottle-aging, the wine gains roundness, richness and complexity. Food Pairing: This wine can be enjoys with a great variety of dishes: Asian recipes, white meats like veal escalope stuffed with prawns and marjoram. As for cheese, a Munster would do a great match.

Wine EnthusiastThis steep slope of vines dominates the village of Chavignol, home to the Bourgeois family. An aromatic wine, it is crisp, textured and full of citrus and gooseberry flavors. This beautiful wine is still young, so wait to drink until 2019.

Wine SpectatorVery taut in feel, with tangy verbena, asparagus, lime pith, flint and gooseberry notes that are compressed into a piercing and pure filament. The long, rapierlike finish ends with an echo of chalk dust. Drink now through 2022. 1,800 cases made.
