    Gérard Boulay Sancerre "Chavignol" '22

    Loire Valley

    Gérard Boulay Sancerre "Chavignol" '22

    The Boulay family have nine hectares in the famed Sancerre village of Chavignol and can trace their history as grape growers in the village back to 1380. Vineyards are planted in Kimmeridgian-centric soils, including the famed crus of Monts Damnés, La Grande Côte, and Clos de Beaujeu. Boulay has been farming organically since 1990 and harvests everything by hand. Overall, Gerard Boulay's terre blanche vineyards produce some of the most distinctive and soil-inflected Sauvignon Blancs in the Loire, with a delineation and minerality often reminiscent of a top Chablis. These are gorgeous, highly complex wines that are a clear step above “regular” Sancerre.

    Made from Sauvignon Blanc, the blanc is sourced from various parcels in the village of Chavignol, with a base of Kimmeridgean limestone. The soil is worked manually, and the fruit is hand-harvested. The wine is fermented with indigenous yeast in tank, then aged for eight months on its lees, with about 95% in tank and 5% in large used wood.
