Domaine Bailly Reverdy Sancerre La Mercy Dieu presented in a 37.5cl Half Bottle.
Sancerre La Mercy Dieu from Domaine Bailly Reverdy is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc from the around the domaine’s vineyards with parcels of wine representing each of the three soil types from around the estate. Whilst not fully organic, the estate practices sustainable agriculture known as “La Lutte Raisonnée”, literally “the reasoned struggle”, which means they use minimal and less aggressive chemicals than other conventional growers. No mineral chemical fertilizers or herbicides are used and grass is allowed to grow between their vines.
The grapes for the Domaine Bailly Reverdy Sancerre La Mercy Dieu are hand-harvested and come from plots of vines representing the three “Sancerrois” soil types – Marl (Terre Blanches), clay / flint and very pebbly / limestone (Coteaux de Caillottes). Grapes undergo a primary selection in the vineyard and are then transferred to the winery where they are gently pressed with a cold settling of 12 to 24 hours prior to alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. La Mercy Dieu translates as “God’s Mercy”.
