Winemaker's Notes

From one of Sancerre's most prized producers, this certified biodynamic Sancerre from the Vacheron family is medium bodied and juicy, with aromas of mineral, elderflower, pink grapefruit, and a faint note of white truffle. Raised exclusively in stainless steel, nothing stands between you and the peerless Sauvignon fruit that these chalky hillsides offered up in 2008.

Critical Acclaim

"Very pale yellow. Highly aromatic bouquet of lemongrass, lime, smoky minerals and anise, plus a hint of white pepper. Dry, focused and pure, offering mineral-laced citrus and orchard fruit flavors given grip by dusty minerals. The finish is refreshingly spicy and very persistent. This will be fleshier and deeper with a year's more bottle age."
