Domaine des Ballandors   Domaine des Ballandors Logo

Quincy was the first French white wine appellation to be given AOC status in 1936.

Latterly, however, it is nearby Sancerre that has grabbed the limelight. Jean Tatin, described by Decanter in 2009 as a 'pioneer' of the region, has helped put Quincy back on the map with his crystalline and classic Sauvignon Blanc.

Jean and his wife Chantal have 20 hectares in Quincy, planted mainly on the freshwater Kimmeridgian limestone that gives the pure, mineral character to the Ballandors Sauvignon Blanc.
