Made of 100% Sauvignon Blanc, Sancerre is a classic French white wine to serve as an aperitif, with white fishes, sushi, or goat's milk cheeses. This bottling from the illustrious Domaine Bailly-Reverdy is made by a quality-driven family producing classic Sancerre with fruit, acidity and minerality in harmony, making them food-friendly and a true pleasure to drink.
The present domaine was created in 1988, but the vineyards have been in the family since the turn of the century. The current generation, led by Franck Bailly, and most recently his nephew Aurelien (son of Franck’s brother Jean-François) has continued the family’s tradition and improved upon it with remarkable consistency and quality. The domaine works 22 hectares of vines that are all planted in the appellation of Sancerre, 15.8 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc and 6.5 hectares of Pinot Noir. Just before Franck’s father, Bernard, retired, the domaine purchased a 5 hectare domaine in Chavignol with vineyards on the very reputable hillsides – Les Monts Damnés, Les Comtesses, Les Bouffants.
