94pts & Editors' Choice Wine Enthusiast
Nestled under the southern foothills of Marlborough’s Wairau Valley, Clos Henri is the wine estate meticulously established and organically run by the famous Sancerre wine growing family of Henri Bourgeois. Uniting 10 generations of winegrowing know-how from the Bourgeois family, Clos Henri crafts textural and elegant wines, capturing the intense Marlborough character with the aim to reveal the identity of the Clos Henri terroir and a true sense of place in the wines. It's the perfect aperitif all by itself, but you will love it with a decadent lobster roll, a shrimp pasta dish with a light cream sauce and some grated lemon rind, or grilled swordfish with roasted garlicky potatoes on the side. G'day mates! You're going to love this Clos Henri!

Wine Enthusiast: Designated Editors' Choice: "Another stellar wine from this quality-driven producer and an excellent vintage, the bang-for-buck factor delivers extra strong here. Notes of soft gunflint and seashell tuck beneath bright citrus and stone fruit, grass and dried green herbs. The palate strikes a lovely balance between texture and zingy acidity. Flinty, mineral nuances run beside juicy citrus right to the long finish. This may be less ageworthy than Henri's upper tier Sauvignon, but it's utterly delicious drinking right now." Nov 2020

Winery: "Chalky and flinty mineral notes are followed by citrus, capsicum and pretty white flower aromas. This wine has good balance, a very nice acid presence and a smooth finish. It is tangy, round, soft, super fruity and easy to drink. Drink on its own or with fresh seafood.

In the French tradition, our entire vineyard is high densely planted - this forces the vines to compete with one another, resulting in highly concentrated grapes and more mineral flavours in the wine. The younger Sauvignon vines are situated on our 3 different soils types. Petit Clos, translated from French to mean 'small enclosed vineyard', captures the vibrancy of our estate. Petit Clos wines come from our younger vines, from a mixture of soil types."
