Bougrier

Maison Bougrier is a successful family-owned négociant company in the Loire founded in 1885 now run by the fifth generation of Bougriers. The company has significant domaine and winery holdings in three major areas: Touraine, Anjou and Muscadet giving it full control over vineyards, grapes and production in a number of sites.

The Touraine area produces whites from both chenin blanc and sauvignon blanc grape varieties. Bougrier’s premium white from Touraine is made from 100% sauvignon blanc grapes and was originally labelled for us as The Society’s Touraine Sauvignon, now sold under the Les Hauts Lieux label.

Domaine Guénault is one of the family’s own properties and situated on steep slopes overlooking the Cher river, which gives the grapes excellent sun exposure. The sauvignon here is grassy and scented and a popular choice as an aperitif.

Loire Valley Vintage 2017

After Jo Locke MW's usual quick visit at harvest time it was clear that 2017 would yield some excellent results. Following her regular February 2018 trip she was delighted to report that she couldn't remember when she was last so excited by a Loire vintage!

Muscadets are gorgeous across the board, and they are such adaptable wines and so light on the stomach. Central Vineyards sauvignons from Domaines Laloue (Exhibition Sancerre) and Riaux (Pouilly-Fumé) are delicious too, with ripeness and freshness in perfect balance. Go to Reuilly, Quincy, Chenonceaux, and Touraine sauvignons for value. Serious chenin lovers will need to wait a bit longer for the 2017s.

The reds have delightfully bright, generous fruit (though it is still early in their progress) which at harvest looked likely to be structured and concentrated as the berries were small and yielding less juice than expected. They have given wines with delightfully bright, generous fruit.
