Domaine Vacheron stands out as one of the top properties in Sancerre, crafting both white and red Sancerre wines with exceptional clarity and precision. Under the leadership of two young cousins, Jean-Laurent and Jean-Dominique Vacheron, the domaine has fully embraced biodynamic farming practices. They refrain from using any synthetic materials in the vineyard, conduct hand-harvesting, and rely solely on fertilizer derived from compost. They intentionally keep yields low to enhance quality.
With access to prized vineyard parcels, the cousins adopt a Burgundian approach to winemaking in Sancerre. They ferment grapes from individual parcels separately and create unique blends each year. This approach allows them to explore the diverse terroirs of Sancerre and produce wines that reflect the nuances of each site.
Brilliant very pale straw colour with highlights of green around the edges and a watery hue. Pronounced green pear and lime aromas are trailed by hints of Granny Smith apple, wet slate, subtle grassy notes and flinty minerals. Mouth filling and intense, the palate features lime, pear and grapefruit flavours over a stony mineral and fresh herb infused back drop. Racy acidity counterpoints the wines textural volume finishing very long and moreish.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.
