“Les Baronnes” is typical of the Sancerre appellation and the Domaine Henri Bourgeois style The vineyards are located in the hills and ridges separating the village of Chavignol from Sancerre, and grow upon soils composed of clay and limestone (65% clay and 35% chalk).
In order to preserve and develop its aromatic potential, this fine wine is fermented in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks at 15 – 18°C (59 - 64.4 °F). It is then matured on its fine lees at cool temperature during 5 months before bottling.
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 gunflint aromas balanced by ripe tropical and yellow orchard fruits.
