Classic Sancerre, packed with flinty and green notes but this vintage has the added bonus of a faint floral note. Pretty and elegant on the palate but with all that racy grip we crave from Sancerre. You want seafood here.

The 2019 "Terroirs" is a return to the style of Sancerre that made the racy Loire dry Sauvignon Blanc a favorite of Parisian oyster bars.  It's racy, almost electric in the mouth, and lighter than previous versions from warm years.  It's too simple to say it's grapefruity, although there are citrus notes all throughout.  This is a wine you'll want to enjoy when you get home from work, as an aperitif with goat cheese (a classic).  But to mimic a truly authentic French experience, you'll need shellfish, and lots of it.  A warning:  the bottle empties very quickly at my house.  It's a pity when there isn't a backup bottle.

 

Always good to catch up with an old favorite and Bailly is definitely a long time favorite here at The Wine Country. Bailly is classic Sancerre, packed with flinty and green notes but this vintage has the added bonus of a faint floral note. Pretty and elegant on the palate but with all that racy grip we crave from Sancerre. You want seafood here. Trust us.

 

Domaine Sylvain Bailly has been making wines in Sancerre since the 1700's. Currently, Jacques Bailly and his wife Marie-Helene manage this legendary domaine. They cultivate many coveted vineyards in the eastern Loire appellation of Sancerre near the town of Bue.
