Description

Domaine Vacheron Sancerre Rouge Belle Dame 2015

Domaine Vacheron Sancerre Rogue Belle Dame can easily defeat a legion of elite Burgundy juice. An absolute killer year after year, Belle Dame is ultra elegant and precise with a delicate palate, polished tannins, light structure and great length. Flavours of small red berries, forest floor, slightly smoky hints of tobacco and a delectable salty-chalky element.

100% Pinot Noir from certified biodynamic Domaine Vacheron vineyards in the charming, hilltop town of Sancerre. The vineyard sits at an altitude of 300 metres and has a mix of flint and chalk soils.

One of the few estates in Sancerre to harvest entirely by hand. Fermentation with indigenous yeasts. The wine ages in neutral French oak barrels. Bottling without fining or filtering.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

 This mature wine continues this producer's reputation for great red Sancerre. The tannins, now fully integrated, gracefully support rich cherry fruits, layers of wood aging and beautifully juicy acidity. This wine is just now ready to drink.
