From the steepest part of the Mont Damnes Vineyard planted with 45 year-old Sauvignon Blanc vines on pure terre blanche soils similar to the soils of Chablis. Boulay farms the vineyard organically and harvests manually. In the cellar Boulay doesn't do much to the fruit. He vinifies with native yeasts in large oak casks. Then he ages the wine on the lees in a combination of barrel and tank then bottles it unfiltered. The result is a sensational Sancerre that is rich, layered, and long. A beautiful elegant wine that ages well and drinks marvelously with age like the best white Burgundies.

"The Monts Damnes from Domaine Gerard Boulay is another 2013 Sancerre that seems to repudiate the characteristics of the vintage. The wine raised in a combination of old oak and tank and the 2013 offers up a stellar bouquet of gooseberry, tangerine, lime peel, great minerality, fresh-cut grass, white flowers and a touch of fresh tarragon in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with outstanding focus and grip, snappy acids and great soil signature on the long, complex and very classy finish. This is a bit more forward out of the blocks than the Clos de Beaujeu, but every bit as fine. 2014-2030+." 94+/100 John Gilman, View From the Cellar
