Frank Bailly owns and runs this consistent, solid-performer 20-ha estate. The vineyards are located on the slopes of Sancerre, Bué and Chavignol. The blend of these three different terroirs (caillottes, terres blanches and silex) contribute greatly to the balance and consistency found in the wines produced by this remarkable estate. Hard work in the vineyard and light hand in the winery ensure that the wines are pure and terroir-driven.
Sancerre Mercy-Dieu is an aromatic Sauvignon, with that unmistakable mineral Sancerre edge. Gooseberry, white fruit with a good dash of exotic fruit on the nose. The palate is grippy and fresh
with lovely ripe kiwi, pear and tropical fruit mixing with pungent and smokey notes, it is an ideal partner to shellfish and other seafood or goat cheese.
“Stylish effort, with some ripe kiwi fruit on the nose alongside fresh gooseberry, mineral and pungent notes. Full, rich on the palate with fresh tropical fruit, jasmine, mineral and smoky notes. Clean, fresh finish. ”
“Stones and gooseberries are found in the aromas of this Sancerre. This rich, medium-bodied wine is highly expressive, tangy, juicy, and satin-textured. Loads of salty minerals are intermingled with pears, apples, flint, and hints of citrus fruits in this lush offering’s personality.” Wine Advocate
