The Bailly family has been synonymous with winegrowing in Sancerre since 1700. Sylvain Bailly brought Domaine Croix Saint Ursin to its greatness in the 1950s, and today, his son, Jacques, runs the estate with the help of his wife, Marie-Hélène, and their daughter Sonia, who joined the domaine as winemaker in 2007. Based in Bué, one of the Sancerre AOC’s finest communes, the Baillys farm 19 hectares spread over 23 small parcels within both Sancerre and the nearby AOC of Quincy. A great value option to Sancerre this charming wine shows some grass and intriguing melon in the nose. Followed by a wine with good minerality, crisp acidity and just enough richness. Very refreshing and food friendly.
