2018 WINE SPECTATOR TOP 100: #46

"Lively, with bright lemon curd, gooseberry, thyme and lime pith notes. The bright finish has mouthwatering cut thanks to a light chalky echo. Drink now through 2021. 3,000 cases imported. -James Molesworth" (WS)

"All about ripe, tropical fruits and freshness, this is an immediately attractive wine. It is open, easy and developing quickly. Already the bright fruits and tangy acidity are forward and refreshing. Drink this wine from 2019." (WE)

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.
