"Les Baronnes" is a wine of exotic fruit and citrus aromas; subtle yet powerful. Its persistence and harmony find their origin in the exposition and quality of the terroir. Delicate nose with aromas of white flesh fruits and citrus, this Sancerre is highlighted by its typicity.

Wine EnthusiastFrom vines between 20 and 40 years old, this is a ripe, intense wine with great acidity. A good mineral texture enhances the white fruits, apricots and pineapple. The aftertaste is crisp and tight. Keep until 2017 for the wine to be at its best.

Wine SpectatorA high-pitched style, with talc and thyme notes leading the way for tangy gooseberry and jicama flavors. The long finish has a bony, minerally feel. Drink now through 2020. 7,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Sancerre les Baronnes opens very flinty on the nose and displays a pretty intense fruit. Round and mouth-filling, this is a piquant and grippy Sancerre with aromatic Sauvignon favors (gooseberries). Very attractive but lacks the personality of the other HB wines.
