Mineral-rich, zesty Sauvignon Blanc primarily from flint soils in Sancerre. Aged in
stainless steel tank for 8 months.
"Just bottled the week I tasted it, and representing a mere third of a normal crop due to the loss to hail, the Vacheron 2009 Sancerre – which as usual mingles around half each flint and classic chalk soils – smells of pennyroyal, clover, blackcurrant, fennel, and very ripe honeydew melon. The melon and herb melange on the palate manages to have an at least metaphorically cooling not to mention a literally luscious effect, which is good considering there is 14.6% alcohol to deal with here. This might well be even more expressive now after having rested from bottling. I would however plan on enjoying it over the next couple of years, not longer, due to the vintage style and alcohol.
