Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Vacheron's 2013 Sancerre Chambrates comes from a plateau above the "Le Paradis" lieu-dit and is cultivated on limestone and red clay soils. Fermented and aged for 12 months in large French oak vats, this citrus-yellow Sancerre is even more intense and Riesling-like on the nose than the Le Pavé (the Vacheron cousins may forgive my comparison with Riesling ,since their Sancerres are certainly Sancerres and no Rieslings). With ripe and concentrated lemon and grapefruit flavors perfectly interwoven with melting stones flavors and stewed stone fruits on the nose, this is a full-bodied, rich and very complex yet also pure, refreshing and finesse-full Sancerre; it has an enormously long and fruit intense, almost lush yet elegant finish with lemon flavors. There is a first maturity here that gives this Chambrates its elegance and noble complexity. An impressive Sancerre indeed.

Domaine Vacheron, Sancerre, Loire, France
Image of winery
The Vacheron vineyards are all close to the village of Sancerre itself and have been in the family for 9 generations. Today, this domaine is run by two cousins, the Messieurs Vacheron. Both have sons studying viticulture to carry on the family tradition. The vineyards cover 34 hectares with two principal soil types; "silex" and "caillotte" or chalk.

Organic viticulture has been a goal of the family for a number of years; as of 2003, the entire estate was certified organic. The following year the winery was converted completely to biodynamic agriculture--to be sure, you won't find more terroir-driven Sancerre anywhere else in the appellation. Jean-Dominique and Jean-Laurent Vacheron are ably leading the domaine to ever-loftier winemaking heights. The wines speak for themselves—always consistent, the quality of Vacheron Sancerre continues to astound.
