2018 Sancerre Clos de Beaujeu, Gérard Boulay
Unlike his neighbours who use the lieu dit name Cul de Beaujeu, Gérard keeps the original 'Clos' in his, as his vines lie within the oldest part of the vineyard, that had originally been surrounded by a wall. They sit in the chalky Kimmeridgian terres blanches soils of the dramatically steep south-east facing slope that rises up behind the village of Chavignol. Of Gérard impressive array of 2018s, this is the most opulant in character, the most open and forward in its youth, with fleshy fruits and just a hint of tropical succulence, twinned with a superbly fresh cut of acidity.
