The wines from Domaine Henri Bourgeois display the complex chalky and flinty terroir of Chavignol and are a delight once they take on a bit of bottle age. The ‘Les Demoiselles’ is made from select Sauvignon grapes from Saint-Laurent, the site of the first vines planted in Pouilly-Fume. 85% is fermented in stainless steel with the remainder fermented in oak from the Troncais forest. Aged on fine lees for seven months, this classy wine is losing some of it’s up front,classic Sauvignon fruit and showing it’s complex, woody notes with quince and pear fruit and an underlying flintiness.

2019 Manda Chuva, Vinho Regional Peninsula de Setubal
On the nose the Manda Chuva frmo Heredade de Portocarro is very mineral-like with saline tinges and white fleshed fruits. The palate is imposing, assertive and has superb minerality. This complex white wine will continue to develop with a few years in bottle, but whilst young taking a sip is just like taking a dip in the Atlantic!
