Domaine Vacheron Sancerre Blanc Les Romains 2020
Domaine Vacheron Sancerre Blanc Les Romains is full on with a sense of lightness. The intense and pure bouquet exudes aromas reminiscent of oysters and lemon. Full-bodied with a refreshing acidity, gymnast-like balance and serious complexity. Grippy with a fine texture. Flavours of lime zest, lemon-y sorrel and a powerful saline minerality that persists long into the finish to delight the senses.

From 20- to 50-year-old vines in a south/southwest-facing vineyard, the 2019 Sancerre Les Romains offers a pure yet intense and iodine-scented bouquet of shells and oysters along with algae aromas. Full-bodied, rich and powerful on the palate, this is an elegant, refined, balanced and refreshingly mineral Les Romains with a long, juicy, pretty aromatic, seriously structured and persistent salty finish with stimulating grip. Impressive, as always. Tasted February 2021.
The Sancerre Les Romains is made in a supple, full style with a sense of lightness. It has the balance of a gymnast and a fine texture. The satisfying, mouthwatering, refined finish features delicate fragrances of chamomile and lemon.
