Les Baronnes seems to excel in small crop, high ripeness, vintages like 2017 and 2018. In fact, the 2017 edition ranked #46 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2018 and the 92 point review for that wine applies to this luscious example as well.
Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"The hills and ridges separating the village of Chavignol from Sancerre are composed of clay and limestone chalk (65% clay and 35% chalk). “Les Baronnes” is typical of the Sancerre appellation and the Domaine Henri Bourgeois style. Subtle yet powerful, its persistence and harmony find their origin in the exposition and quality of the terroir. Crispy, and fruity this wine has some lime, apple and gunflint aromas balanced by ripe tropical and yellow orchard fruits."

92/100 Wine Enthusiast (2017 Vintage)
"Lively, with bright lemon curd, gooseberry, thyme and lime pith notes. The bright finish has mouthwatering cut thanks to a light chalky echo."
