Domaine Vacheron Sancerre 2018

Regarded as one of Sancerre’s greatest estates, Domaine Vacheron produces consistently delicious and structured wines from layered, flinty soils. Fruit is organic, hand-harvested, and fermented with indigenous yeasts, showing a distinct final minerality. Their entry-level Sancerre is a world-class example of Sauvignon Blanc, showing flavors of lemon, orange, and grapefruit, marked by notes of gunflint, soil, and wet stones.

Sauvignon Blanc

Zippy aromatic vigorous white most readily associated with France (Sancerre; Pouilly-Fumé; Bordeaux Blanc) but truly a world-beater thanks to its citrusy grip and telltale herbaceous aroma.
