This wine is a terroir selection of our estate. The main difference between Bel Echo and Clos Henri is the Terroir. Bel Echo Sauvignon Blanc shows the voluptuous expression of the clay soil whereas the Clos Henri is more of an elegant and mineral expression of the Greywacke stones. The fruit of Clos Henri and Bel Echo are handled the same way from the vineyard to the winery, through to the blend. All our blocks are harvested and kept separately until the blend.

“We believe we have to make the most of the experience acquired by the Bourgeois family, thereby making a Sauvignon Blanc that respects the French winemaking tradition. We also believe that we ought to make a wine that respects the Marlborough character. This wine shows great classical lines while enriched with astonishing Marlborough fruit personality. This personality is sourced from the Clos Henri terroir and revealed through its fine aromatic intensity”. Damien Yvon, Winemaker

Winery Tasting Notes


The 2012 Bel Echo has intense ripe fruit aromas, peach with a hint of grapefruit, very lush with a delicate note of chalky minerality.


The palate is beautifully defined by great length, with mouth watering citrus, minerals and a dry finish.

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.
