|Availability:||In stock (9)|
2016 Vacheron Sancerre Les Romains- 100% Sauvignon Blanc. This is a vibrant and zesty wine with a touch of flinty smoke and citrus. It is very clean with loads of energy and bright freshness throughout. Domaine Vacheron, currently run by two cousins, Jean-Laurent & Jean-Dominique, sits along the eastern edge of the Sancerre appellation. It was certified organic back in 2003 and now has been integrated into biodynamic practices. These wines are the essence of what terroir-driven wines are all about. Q’s Top 100!
The Vacherons without question are Sancerre’s leading winemaking clan. From the family’s pioneering work in identifying and exploring the region’s top terroirs to their leading position in biodynamic viticulture,
there are few if any artisans today in Sancerre as exacting or as respected. The estate’s peerless older vines, planted and cultivated by generations of family members, are cared for fastidiously. Yet it is the their singlevineyard wines—terroir-based selections recalling the painstaking work of Burgundian monks in the Côte d’Or—that have shown the world the heights and complexity that Sancerre can reach.
