Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Côte des Monts Damnés 2020
|France, Loire Valley, Sancerre
The delicate tropical fruit aromas (a proof of ripe Sauvignon grapes) and clean mineral and fruity palate testify to La Cote des Monts Damnes' pedigree as an exceptional wine from one of the finest slopes in the Sancerre appellation. A nose of tropical fruit and passion fruit with citrus fruits. A very well balanced palate bursting with honey, grapefruit and a fresh citrus finish. A very elegant beauty. Because of its bracing acidity, Sancerre is quite versatile. Perhaps the most famous food and wine pairings is Goat Cheese and Sancerre. This pairing works as Goat Cheese is tart and earthy, but quite plain. When you add Sancerre to the mix, it imparts a acidic and mineral driven citrus bite, that brings out herbal flavors in the cheese that you have never noticed before. Also excellent with asparagus, white fish, roasted turkey, pork chops and crab cakes.
