Domaine Vacheron Sancerre 2017

Winemaker's Notes:

"With cellars located in the charming, hilltop town of Sancerre, Jean-Laurent and Jean-Dominique Vacheron have vineyards in mainly the eastern part of Sancerre on hard, flinty soils as well as smaller holding on softer limestone and clay soils. Their "village" Sancerre bottling draws from both terroirs to create a subtle, mineral and completely satisfying wine. One of the few estates in Sancerre to harvest entirely by hand this wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in tank for at least 4 months before bottling." -Winery notes

Extremely nice Sancerre (sauv blanc). Very well balanced with not too tart lemon and a hint of almond on the nose. There's some restrained grapefruit and lemon peel on the front end, and a little dose of salinity on the medium finish.

Exllent Sauvignon Blanc so much more subtle and complex than NZSB

Appealing minerally nose of oaky papaya. Crisp citrus palate. High minerality overwhelms the hint of peach blossom. Delicate oaky finish. Well balanced and elegant but a bit rich for my taste in sauvigon blanc.

I just opened a bottle of this that I got in Canada, that had been impecacbly cellared here, and I think I just waited too long to oopen it, but after a full hour in the glass, it began to reveal layers of deep violet perfume, a touch of earth, and from the getgo was quite rich and silky from one of my favorite producers of Sancerre rouge. I think 2 years ago it wouldve been fatter, more vibrant aromatically. It wasn't oxised or remotely tired, just less expressive.

From a January bottling - needless to say, the first of this cuvee's many (all, though, representing essentially the same assemblage) - the Vacheron 2011 Sancerre smells and is juicily suggestive on the palate of ripe honeydew melon tinged with mint ...

This fresh, racy white exhibits a floral edge, backed by hints of talc, white peach and green fig. Light, but pure and persistent through the finish. Drink now. -JM Wine Spectator. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Loire Valley in France. 2011 Domaine Vacheron Sancerre 750ml

The generic Vacheron 2010 Sancerre rouge - from around half each of flint and Kimmeridgian soils, as reflects the domaine's aggregate constitution - was raised one third in wooden upright, the rest in older barrique, and bottled already in August, 20...

Intensely herbaceous aromas are followed by crisp herb and green fruit flavors. There is an extra element of balanced richness from the peach juice ripeness, while the wine is suffused with a great sweet apple skin texture. - R.V. Wine Enthusiast.
