Bougrier Sancerre

The Experience

Drink When...
You fancy being Brian Blessed
Listen To...
Blessed is the Memory by Leonard Cohen
Think About...
Gordon's alive!
Drink With...
Goats cheese from the Cher Valley ("Crottin de Chavignol")

The Oddbins Take

This wine is so fist-thumpingly fresh, so buttock-clenchingly minerally, so eye-poppingly citrusy that, if you try it, you might for a moment mistake yourself for Brian Blessed, immediately start charging around, tearfully declaring “Gordon’s alive!!” to anyone who’ll listen and generally make yourself known to ear drums the world over. So, if you’ve ever wondered what it’s actually like to be Brian Blessed, this is the wine for you.

The Bougrier family is one of the last family-owned independent producers in the Loire Valley and they have been going for five generations. They run three different wineries Caves de la Touraine in Touraine, Caves de l'Angevine in Anjou and Caves de la Nantaise in Muscadet.

The winery operates in accordance with ‘Reasoned Agriculture’ rules. The wine undergoes fermentation at cool temperatures and does not undergo malolactic fermentation. No egg or dairy products were used during vinification.

Light golden colour, with a shimmering, pale yellow sheen, the nose has pronounced aromas of blackcurrant buds and cut lawn, while the palate is equally herbaceous, fresh and persistent.
