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
