A check of the listed producer on the back label came up with Domaine Henri Bourgeois who has holdings in the Loire Valley, Burgundy, and New Zealand. They are excellent with multiple bottling from different sectors of the Sancerre AOC.

Sancerre wines typically have excellent minerality which the everyday Sauvignon Blanc wines may not show. Sancerre wines sell from $25 to $55 (and above) and are highly sought after. The Kirkland Signature Sancerre 2022 selling at $14.99 from a top-quality producer can be a real bargain.

The alcohol content is 13.5%.
