Domaine Vacheron Sancerre Blanc 2021
Domaine Vacheron Sancerre Blanc 2019 is a direct, full and expressive Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc.
A textbook Sancerre from one of the best producers in the region. Light yellow colour. Fabulously aromatic nose of lemon citrus, green apple, flinty minerals and white florals. The fruity and floral aromas follow through to the steely dry palate. Carefully balanced with a rich smokiness, juicy acidity and long mineral finish.
100% Sauvignon Blanc from certified biodynamic Domaine Vacheron vineyards in the charming, hilltop town of Sancerre. The vineyard sits at an altitude of 300 metres and has flint and limestone soils. The vines have an age of 30–50 years. One of the few estates in Sancerre to harvest entirely by hand. The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts and ages for 4 months in tank. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES
The 2019 Sancerre opens with a clear and highly attractive ripe peach aroma with coolish flint stone notes. Full-bodied and intense, with lingering salinity and sustainable structure, this is an already accessible Sancerre with a long and grippy finish. Tasted in February 2021.
Vacheron's 2019 Sancerre Blanc is classy, polished and pedigreed through and through. A whole range of bright Sauvignon Blanc aromas and flavors race out of the glass. Citrus, sage, tomato leaf and white pepper all grace this taut, beautifully sculpted Sancerre from Vacheron.
