Producers like Sonia Bailly and her tiny family domaine in the heart of Sancerre have been some of the hardest hit by the ongoing pandemic. They’re a fantastic little family-owned and operated boutique making must-have wines that earned her almost an exclusive U.S. deal with Keith McNally selling to Balthazar, one of the busiest restaurants in the entire world.
