Bailly, our village here in Burgundy, is the birthplace of the AOC Crémant de Bourgogne.
Since 1972, in an underground quarry providing unique natural conditions, we have produced sparkling wines that belong to a world of enchantment. They come from superb noble grapes, hand-harvested then vinified and patiently matured. Our wines, sprung from the bedrock yet finely chiselled, carry one away with their intense, truly mineral freshness...

The winegrowers at Bailly Lapierre grow and use the whole range of Burgundy’s finest grape varieties: Pinot Noir and Gamay for the reds, Chardonnay and Aligoté for their whites.
One variety, one passion...
In this northern part of Burgundy that we call home, we are passionate about our Pinot Noir. We have been that way a very long time. Ancient writings even indicate that this regal variety originated in Irancy. We therefore created some wines of repute to celebrate the grape that has such charisma!
Underlying the birth of “Vive-la-Joie” lay a form of curiosity...This cuvée, in both white and rosé, we consider to be the flagbearer of our winery. Its expression is the fulfillment of the skills and know-how we have developed and handed down since 1972, enriched and honed by the experience and research of one and all among us.
