This tiny 6.5 hectare domaine in the Loire was started by Emile Balland in 1999.

The Beaux Jours blanc is produced from vineyards on the slopes of the Loire river at Bonny and Beaulieu and is a complex wine with leesy character and great finesse but at an everyday price.

Equally suited to creamy pasta dishes or simple fish or scallop dishes, not forgetting Sauvignon Blanc’s soulmate; goat’s cheese!
