Overview

Petit Clos, translated from French to mean ‘small enclosed vineyard’, captures the essence of our estate. Petit Clos wines come from our youngest vines and are a blend of grapes from our 3 different soil types; Wither clay, Broadbridge clay and Greywacke river stone. Careful fruit selection and great attention to detail was carried out in the vineyard and the winery to match the beautiful terroir we have at Clos Henri. We wanted to make a Sauvignon Blanc with charismatic fruit in a rounded style.

“This quality wine is ready to drink at any moment: between friends, with a light fish and summer salads or just on its own. Perfect fruit balance, no sweetness, lovely roundness. It’s a wine we took pleasure making, and that we want people to have fun with”. Damien Yvon, Winemaker

Winery Profile

Henri Bourgeois is a very highly regarded French producer, in Sancerre, in the Loire Valley. a district best known for its wooded and highly ageable Sauvignon Blancs, with 10 generations of viticulture running through this family's veins. They made the leap to becoming dedicated producers in 1952, with great success.In 2001, the Bourgeois family, feeling their hands bound by the restrictions Appellation rules lay upon French producers, decided to purchase a vineyard in that other, new, home of Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand, where they would be able to make wine in a more free fashion.The vineyard is a former sheep station, and has never been used for cultivation. Nevertheless, the Bourgeois have spent considerable time gradually preparing the soils for viticulture, 6 hectares of the property at a time.With 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Pinot Noir planted, the same proportions as the Sancerre Vineyard, and the understanding of generations of winemaking and viticulture, Clos Henri has earned a esteemed place within the broader New Zealand winemaking community.
