The vineyards are located mostly around the village of Bué, with holdings in the famous vineyards of Chêne Marchand, Grand Chemarin, le Château and les Chasseignes.
Bailly Sancerre Terroirs is a pale yellow in color with crisp acidity. Medium in body, it is pure and elegant with floral notes and freshness framed with citrus and stone. Dry with no tannins and no oak, it offers clean flavors of grapefruit, lime, honey, spice, minerals and herbal notes. The wine was aged on its lees for greater fullness. It is clean and refreshing with good length on the finish.
