Sancerre Domaine Vacheron Blanc 2018, Loire, France
100% Sauvignon Blanc, unoaked organic and Biodynamic
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. Fabulously aromatic nose, concentrated gooseberry fruit flavours, all carefully balanced by a rich smokiness and steely dry palate. A mineral, elegant and long finish. The classic match to white goats’ cheese, this wine is also a brilliant partner to smoked salmon and poached trout.
"This entry-level wine from this producer is anything but. It is a ripe, complex wine, produced from biodynamically grown grapes, rich in white fruits with an intense steely texture. The wine will be ready to drink from 2020." ROGER VOSS 90/100 winemag.com
