"This offers flavors of grapefruit, thyme and dragon fruit that glide on the palate, backed by a savory mineral note. Tangy acidity provides support and imparts energy. Drink now through 2021. 7,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported. -AZ" (WS)

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.
