Product Description

"Pierre Bréjoux, when Inspector General of the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée board, noted that there are some wines of Sancerre that "...one would like to have a throat as long as a swan's neck so as to taste them better." Enter Boulay's Comtesse, a wine as profound and gorgeous as Sancerre can get. This rare bottling comes from 0.40 hectares of 65 year old vines in the Comtesse lieu dit at the chalky epicentre of Monts-Damnés. Since 1870 this vineyard has been widely considered to be the finest single terroir in Sancerre. The soil composition is pure Kimmeridgian limestone with a 30/40 cm layer of soil above the solid limestone bedrock. These are perfect conditions for wines of extreme precision, minerality and generosity-just what this is. If you are lucky enough to get to taste this next to the Monts-Damnés, you will get a startling reminder of the difference a few yards can make in the world of terroir. Just a few barrels are made of this remarkable wine each year." - Importers Note
