2019 Domaine Vacheron Sancerre Blanc
Having a presence in Sancerre for generations, Domaine Vacheron was most recently run by brothers Denis and Jean-Louis Vacheron but have now handed the reins to the next generation, cousins Jean-Dominique and Jean-Laurent Vacheron. Previously the two have travelled separately to gain experience else where, as do most up-and-coming vignerons at family-run Domaines. Jean-Laurent in Burgundy with Aubert de Villaine and Jean-Dominique in Châteauneuf du Pape. It is the two cousins who have been the driving force behind converting the estate to biodynamics.
Vacheron's 2019 Sancerre Blanc is classy, polished and pedigreed through and through. A whole range of bright Sauvignon Blanc aromas and flavors race out of the glass. Citrus, sage, tomato leaf and white pepper all grace this taut, beautifully sculpted Sancerre from Vacheron.
