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.
Crisp, steely and fresh with notes of mown grass, herbs mineral and citrus.
Goes very well with poached fish, seabream and a curried crust or just simple Lobster and crayfish from the BBQ.
