Domaine Sylvain Bailly
Dynamic Jacques Bailly (heir to a winemaking tradition going back to the 1700s) and wife Marie-Hélène cultivate an array of coveted vineyards around Bué in the eastern Loire appellation of Sancerre, including a plot originally called 'Choix Marchand', source of wines merchants kept for themselves.
A ruby robe in appearance, brilliant, with purple and garnet-red highlights. Aromas of red fruits on the nose of raspberry and blackcurrant . On the palate it is fruity, black cherry. A fine finish supported by supple and silky tannins.
Ideal with grilled and roasted meat, small game, cheese.
Robert Pfrker, Wine Advocate, 2019: 93/1000 points.
