A name for love
The name Bailly-Reverdy was created in 1952, when Bernard Bailly married Marie-Thérèse Reverdy. Four years later, Bernard decided to bottle and sell his wine, which he grew privately. The couple's surnames then became the estate name and Domaine Bailly-Reverdy was born. In 1979, the export of the wines began under Jean-François, Bernard's son. Today, Aurélien, Bernard's grandson, is part of the estate and runs the daily business together with his uncle Franck.
Geology and wine in the Loire Valley
Domaine Bailly-Reverdy is located in Sancerre, in the Loire Valley, so it is not surprising that the main grape varieties of the estate are Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, from which Sancerre AOC wines are made. Typical of the region are the "terres blanches" of chalk (hence the name) and clay in the western hills. Towards the Loire, there are soils of clay and flint which give the wine a mineral note and absorb the heat well, thus accelerating its maturation. There are also gravelly soils, very stony and calcareous, which tend to produce fruity, soft wines. Four white wines, one red wine and one rosé are produced by the domain today.
