Sancerre, Les Buy (2015/16)
The Balland family is probably one of the oldest of the region of Sancerre (dating back to 1650!). They have also been one of the first families to start of the Coteaux du Giennois appellation back in the 90’s.
Les Buy is a special cuvee for The Barterhouse, to get a perfect representation of Sancerre at its best. “Les Buy” takes its name from the former village of Bué, where the Balland family settled a few centuries ago.
A richly textured Sauvignon Blanc with ripe gooseberry aromas, citrus fruits, bright acidity, and flinty minerality.
