About Jean Pierre Bailly

The Bailly family has been growing wine in the heart of Pouilly-Fumé for five generations. The father and son team of Jean Pierre and Patrice Bailly work closely together to produce a Pouilly-Fumé of authentic, traditional character, with a powerful musky fragrance and a flinty edge, from vines up to 40 years old. This wine has real elegance, with fragrant citrus and gooseberry fruit balanced by mineral-laced acidity and is made to improve with age. Father and son make wines of character and refuse to give way to modern easy-drinking trends.

The family cultivates 16 hectares (39 acres) of vineyards, all situated on hillsides that are considered among the best of Pouilly-Fumé. The Sauvignon Blanc vines are up to 40 years old and are planted on limestone soils.
