Gérard Boulay Sancerre Chavignol 2023


We have 33 in stock (Inventory is live and accurate)

  • Land: Located in the famed village of Chavignol within the Sancerre appellation, Gérard Boulay's vineyards stretch across 9 hectares of the region's characteristic Kimmeridgian limestone, known locally as "terre blanche." This ancient marine soil, rich in fossilized seashells, provides a mineral foundation that significantly influences the flavor profile of the wines, lending them a notable crispness and complexity.
  • Wine: The 2023 Sancerre Chavignol from Gérard Boulay shows the purity of Sauvignon Blanc grown in this unique terroir. The wine is vinified using natural yeasts and aged for 8 months on lees, with 95% in tank and 5% in large used wood to maintain freshness and enhance texture. This method emphasizes the varietal's vibrant acidity and aromatic profile, marked by notes of citrus and flint, and showcases Boulay’s minimalist approach to winemaking.
  • People: Gérard Boulay represents a lineage of winemakers dating back to 1380, with a profound connection to Chavignol's viticultural heritage. His meticulous care in the vineyard and minimal intervention in the cellar reflect a philosophy that values terroir expression above all. By working the soil manually and using organic practices established since 1990, Boulay ensures the vines produce fruit that is both healthy and highly expressive of their environment.
