"A high-pitched style, with talc and thyme notes leading the way for tangy gooseberry and jicama flavors. The long finish has a bony, minerally feel. Drink now through 2020. 7,000 cases made. –JM " (WS)

"The 2015 Sancerre les Baronnes opens very flinty on the nose and displays a pretty intense fruit. Round and mouth-filling, this is a piquant and grippy Sancerre with aromatic Sauvignon favors (gooseberries). Very attractive but lacks the personality of the other HB wines." (WA)

Winery Notes:
Grape variety:
Sauvignon Blanc

Terroir:
Chalky-clay

The hills and ridges separating the village of Chavignol from Sancerre are composed of clay and limestone chalk (65% clay and 35% chalk). “Les Baronnes” comes from this terroir so long planted with vines.

Delicate nose with aromas of white flesh fruits and citrus, this Sancerre is highlighted by its typicity and its great expression of the Sauvignon grape.

“Les Baronnes” is a wine of exotic fruit and citrus aromas; subtle yet powerful. Its persistence and harmony find their origin in the exposition and quality of the terroir.
