The Legacy of Clos Henri Wines

Located in the picturesque region of Sancerre, France, the Bourgeois Family estate has been a cherished heritage for over ten generations. With an esteemed reputation as one of Sancerre's most established winegrowers and a renowned family winery in France, the Bourgeois Family is celebrated for their unwavering commitment to crafting exceptional Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir wines that truly embody the essence of their terroir.

A Tale of Two Vineyards

The story of Clos Henri wines unfolds not only in the charming village of Chavignol in Sancerre but also in Marlborough, New Zealand. This tale narrates the journey of a family who has nurtured deep roots in both these regions, each adding its unique character to the wines.

Arnaud Bourgeois, the General Manager, passionately expresses the vision behind Clos Henri wines, stating, "Our aim is to offer wines that reveal their origins, subtly whispering their Marlborough roots while proudly proclaiming their craftsmanship from the distinct Clos Henri terroir."

The Visionary - Henri Bourgeois

The turning point in the family's history can be traced back to Henri Bourgeois, whose audacious spirit transformed the course of their legacy. In the 1950s, armed with a mere two hectares of vineyards on the hills of Chavignol, Henri Bourgeois devoted himself to his vines in an unknown territory.

It was within these vineyards that the foundation for their exceptional wines was laid, bearing the name of Henri Bourgeois himself. Joined by his sons, Jean-Marie and Rémi, in the 1960s, they continued to expand the family's horizons. Discovering new terroirs, acquiring precious parcels of land, and passionately promoting the reputation of Sancerre both nationally and internationally, the Bourgeois family's adventure continued to flourish.

The Torchbearers of Tradition

Today, Arnaud, Lionel, and Jean-Christophe Bourgeois, the current generation of the family, carry the legacy of their ancestors while embracing the future of Clos Henri wines. They work hand in hand, each contributing their unique vivacity and generous personality to the wines, now bearing the distinguished name "Famille Bourgeois."

In this harmonious collaboration, they shape the future of the vines and wines with a shared commitment to excellence, ensuring that every bottle of Clos Henri tells a compelling story of passion, heritage, and a deep connection to the land.
