The domaine was created in 1988 but the 22 hectares of vines that are all planted in the appellation of Sancerre have been in the family since the turn of the century. The current generation, led by Franck Bailly, and most recently his nephew Aurelien, has continued the family’s tradition and improved upon it with remarkable consistency and quality. ‘Chavignol’ is sourced from from clay-limestone based and rocky limestone soils(holdings on the hillsides of – Les Monts Damnés, Les Comtesses, and Les Bouffants). About 5% of the total blend is aged in neutral barrels, with the rest aged on its lees for 4 to 5 months in stainless steel.
