Sancerre Blanc Vacheron 2021 (750ML)

"Domaine Vacheron is one of Sancerre’s elite properties, producing white and red Sancerre of amazing purity and definition. The Domaine hasbeen completely transformed over to biodynamic farming (certified byBiodyvin in 2005) with two young cousins, Jean-Laurent and Jean-Dominique Vacheron, at the helm.No synthetic material is used in thevineyard, harvests are carried outexclusively by hand, and the onlyfertilizer used is produced from thecompost pile. Yields are keptextremely low. Having inheritedsome of the most coveted parcels inthe appellation (and being smartabout current land purchases), thecousins are trying a Burgundianapproach to Sancerre winemaking, with parcels being vinified by terroir andblends varying from year to year. Pinot Noir is not an afterthought chezVacheron, but a focus, and on soils just a couple of hours west of Burgundy,the cousins are making grand, expressive bottlings from the varietal."–Importer Notes

Rebecca Gibb, Vinous: "Hailing from several different parcels belonging to the Vacheron family in the frost-affected, cool 2021 season, the 2021 Sancerre Blanc is fresh and fragrant. A mouthwatering style that skips along like a lamb on a spring day. It has just-ripe pineapple, gooseberry and even a tang of green pea in a rather varietal way. The finish is very lightly chalky, as if it is a mere sprinkling. Makes for excellent refreshment." 07/22
