Domaine Vacheron - Sancerre Blanc 2021 (750ml)

| /

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.
The nose has lovely citrus - grapefruit and lime zest with minerality and vegetal notes. The palate is dry and fresh with lots of ripe citrus fruit (lemon and grapefruit) with a touch of nectarine and passion fruit. A long, zesty teeth-costing finish with light creaminess and some smoke.
88 points, "Hailing from several different parcels belonging to the Vacheron family in the frost-affected, cool 2021 season, the 2021 Sancerre Blanc is fresh and fragrant. A mouthwatering style that skips along like a lamb on a spring day. It has just ripe pineapple, gooseberry and even a tang of green pea inn a rather varietal way. The finish is very lightly chalky, as if it is a mere sprinkling. Makes for excellent refreshment." - Vinous
