“Les Baronnes” is typical of the Sancerre appellation and the
Domaine Henri Bourgeois style. Subtle yet powerful, its persistence and harmony
find their origin in the exposition and quality of the terroir. Crispy, and
fruity this wine has some lime, apple and gun flint aromas balanced by ripe
tropical and yellow orchard fruits.
A delight at the beginning of the meal, “Les Baronnes” is also
an excellent companion to fish dishes such as scallops with mango emulsion or
Roll of bass in curry. The famous Crottin de Chavignol goat cheese, produced in
the same region, is the perfect match

96 points Decanter
Intense aromatics of white flowers, flint and lime. Full and
rich with ripe citrus, pine needle and smoky minerality. Lovely concentration
with a refreshing, long finish.
92 points Wine Spectator
Lively, with bright lemon curd, gooseberry, thyme and lime pith
notes. The bright finis has mouthwatering cut thanks to a light chalky echo.
