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.
Made from 100% Pinot Noir, the La Louée Sancerre rose exhibits bright red berry and floral aromas and flavours, with strong mineral undertones. It is crisp and fresh, with fine mineral complexity and fleshy fruit on the midpalate, which drive the long, focused finish.
We love to drink this wine with Japanese food!
The must comes from a direct pressing of the grapes. Cold settling (24 to 48 hours). The alcoholic fermentation takes place in thermo-regulated tanks over 15 days. The wines are aged on their lees before racking, tartaric precipitation through artificial chilling, filtration with Kieselgur. Bottled the spring following the harvest.
