Notes from the Importer: If you want a Sauvignon Blanc that is perfectly balanced between fresh, exuberant fruit and lean, saline minerality than Boulay really is your guy. This is the style of wine that was first discovered by ex pats and soldiers during the world wars and then began to really take off in U.S. bistros during the 1970's and '80's. It's simply delicious and extremely drinkable.
Sancerre Comtesse - From 50-75 year old vines located in the sweet spot of the Mont Damnés vineyard (bottom of the slope, near Clos La Neore of Vatan), this is often the most powerful wine from Boulay's lineup.
