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.

100% Sauvignon Blanc from certified biodynamic Domaine Vacheron vineyards in the charming, hilltop town of Sancerre. The Les Romains vineyard is full south-facing and has an altitude of 320 metres. It is one of the domaine's first 'single-vineyard' bottlings, the first vintage was in 1997. The vines have an average age of 20–50 years. Pure flint soils, rich in fossilized material, contribute a minerality and smokiness to the wine.
Harvest is exclusively by hand. Fermentation with indigenous yeasts. The wine ages for 4 months in old French oak foudres. Bottling without fining or filtering.
