Food pairing

Sancerre Jadis, a true original, deserves an original cuisine that allies local and exotic tastes, principally fish or white meats that play with salty-sweet associations. For example, chicken breast with honey and rosemary or curry and candied oranges. Also a great pairing with goat cheese, asparagus, roasted turkey and pork chops.

History

For ten generations now the Bourgeois family has devoted its passion and values to Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, becoming Sancerre’s most well-known producer. The company is now led by the current generation of the family – Jean-Marie and Remi Bourgeois. The winery and family base is the village of Chavignol, and Domaine holdings can be found on a mosaic of plots throughout Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. Each plot is isolated and worked in respect of its origin to reveal, in the most precise and true way, the expression of its terroir, whether we are talking Kimmeridgian marls, flint, or limestone clay soils. We see this expressed in a dizzying array of bottlings, many of which are amongst the most sought after of their kind in the Loire each year.

Vinification

After pressing, the juice is allowed 2 days of natural clarification to reduce sediment without filtration. Next, the juice is placed in barrels and tanks. After fermention the Sancerre Jadis is racked and bottled in accordance with the lunar cycle.
