Sancerre Blanc Domaine Vacheron, Loire, France, 2020
100% Sauvignon Blanc, unoaked, grown on flinty & silex soils, certified organic and biodynamic production.
A hilltop town, Sancerre lies to the east of the Loire region, facing Pouilly-Fumé opposite the river. Known for its racy, mineral, and pungent expression of Sauvignon Blanc, this is textbook Sancerre from probably the best producer in the region. A family-run domaine with Jean-Laurent and Jean-Dominique Vacheron in charge.
Fabulously aromatic nose, concentrated gooseberry fruit flavours, all carefully balanced by a rich smokiness and steely dry palate. A mineral, elegant and long finish.
"Most producers can only dream of an “entry-level” wine that's this good. The 2020 Sancerre is a touch flinty on the nose right now, and offers pure fruit reminiscent of gooseberry, nettle and boxwood. This has a certain ease to it, conveying a mellow texture within its light-bodied frame."
90/100 points. Rebecca Gibb MW, vinous.com, August 2021
The classic match to white goats’ cheese, this wine is also a brilliant partner to smoked salmon and poached trout.
