About Domaine Vacheron:
Domaine Vacheron, owned by two cousins, Jean-Laurent and Jean-Dominique Vacheron, is a biodynamic winery and is one of Sancerre’s elite properties. The property is farmed to 34 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc and 11 hectares of Pinot Noir. No synthetic material is used in the vineyard, grapes are harvested by hand, and only compost is used as fertilizer. They take a Burgundian approach to winemaking, by vinifying according to parcels and blending according to vintage.

Owning some of the most coveted parcels in the appellation, the cousins produce both white and red Sancerre of amazing purity and definition. ‘In fact, the rich and powerful whites belong to the best Sancerres you can find,’ – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. As Jacqueline Friedrich opened her description of Domaine Vacheron in her recently-released book on the Sancerre/Pouilly region, ‘Here is a domaine that goes from strength to strength. And shows no signs of stopping.’

Tasting notes:
Vacheron is a certified organic and biodynamic farm.

'This single-vineyard wine is packed with fruit along with an herbal, green asparagus flavor and strongly mineral character. Acidity lifts the fruit to another level of intensity, underlining a promising future. Drink from 2020.' – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 92/100

'Sourced from a 1ha plot on a south-facing slope, on which the roots are in direct contact with the bedrock. There are smoky, flinty notes to the juicy white fruit, showing good concentration on the balanced palate. Should age very well.' – Decanter, 92/100
