Tasting Notes
This is a delightful white made in a protective way by hand harvesting the healthiest grapes and fermenting in stainless steel. It has an appealing pale-yellow colour with hints of green and pronounced aromas consisting of a mixture of citrus fruits and flowers. The combination of marl, flint and limestone gives the wine its distinctive mineral character. This minerality is complemented by round peach notes and a subtle springtime blossom character. The palate is fresh and crisp, with a round and yet structured mouthfeel and flavours that linger on the finish.

Ideal with goat’s cheese (dry and young), grilled fish, poultry and seafood.

This beautiful region is situated 200Km south of Paris and extends west along the high reaches of the Loire River. This is a cold climate region making top quality wines from Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir and includes the following famous villages; Sancerre, Pouilly Sur Loire, Quincy and Menetou-Salon. The soils have a high percentage of flint and limestone, and this results in crisp, aromatic whites and perfumed, elegant rose and reds. Littered with artisan producers, the best single Domaine wines are made in small quantities and are of top quality.

Domaine Bailly-Reverdy is situated in the village of Bué, just 5km from Sancerre. Established in 1952 by Bernard Bailly and his wife Marie-Thérèse Reverdy. The winery is still family run and when Bernard`s youngest son Franck joined the family business in 1991, he was the driving force behind making the vine growing process more environmentally friendly. Today the vineyard is run by Bernard and Marie-Therese`s grandson, Aurelien.
