About Clos Henri
Bought by the Bourgeois wine family, very well known in Sancerre, in 2001. The vineyards cover an area of around 92 hectares with varying soil types, including gravels and clays, which go to help the remarkably elegant Pinot Noir made. Committed to maintaining the bio-diversity of the farm, the family have planted various crops to contribute to the diversity of the land they farm.
A small amount of new oak for maturation (only 9%) create a wine with bright red fruit and subtle smokiness. This is an elegant Pinot Noir that echos the French style. light tannins and medium body with a long finish and a gentle perfume, typical of a quality Pinot.
