Estate Notes

A classic Loire Valley style, perfect quaffing as an aperitif, or alongside fish and creamy poultry dishes.

Jean-Pierre Baron was one of the first vignerons to plant Sauvignon in the Touraine way back in 1946, but up until the 2002 vintage the family had always sold its grapes to the local co-operative. Then his son, Samuel, made the bold move of making his own wine – rapidly establishing a reputation for quality.

Old vines (vieilles vignes) worked by biodynamic methods, combined with a cool and difficult growing season resulted in a tiny crop, one-fifth of normal, giving a wonderfully concentrated and balanced expression of Sauvignon, and a match for wines two to three times the price.

Reviews

Even greater concentration than previous vintages from reduced yields and production, with crisp, vibrant acidity and freshness to balance. The best yet in our opinion and a must-buy for Sauvignon lovers!
