While Louis Bovard is renown for his dedication to Chasselas, he has also actively promoted several non-indigenous varieties suitable to his limestone-rich soils. Most notable among these are Chenin and Sauvignon Blanc. On the dizzyingly steep slopes of Epesses (at a grade of 30°) Louis has planted Sauvignon Blanc for a wine named Buxus – the latin for Boxwood. This name is no mistake, as it is a characteristically spicy aroma frequently found in this wine. Aged in barrel, its inspiration can be found in the iconic Sauvignon Blancs of Sancerre and Pouilly.
