Baron Touraine Sauvignon Vieilles Vignes 2017

Jean-Pierre and his son Samuel Baron own a 20 hectare family domaine in the village of Thesée on the right-bank of the Cher River. Beginning in 1946, Jean-Pierre’s father was among the first to plant Sauvignon Blanc grapes in this region which is now recognized as Appellation Touraine Controlée. Jean-Pierre Baron decided to leave the local co-op and begin estate bottling with the 1998 vintage and a new Loire star was born. Beginning with the 2010 growing season, Samuel initiated the transition of his estate to organic farming, or “Agriculture Biologique.”  The domaine will attain its certification in two years.

Baron’s Sauvignon Les Vieilles Vignes has excellent concentration and body, with an enticing lime-citrus and stone fruit bouquet and a long finish.  Baron’s Sauvignon is a ripe, complex wine with pure Loire terroir character. It is the equal of many basic Sancerres in the market, and is a far better value.
