"Flinty, with light straw and gooseberry notes and good zip through the thyme-infused finish. Drink now. 7,000 cases made. –JM " (WS)

"This wine is packed with the purest stream of citrus flavors. There is a herbal background to the fruitiness along with acidity and a bright aftertaste. It's a wine to drink young for its delicious fruit." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Grape variety:
Sauvignon Blanc


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.
