29. Sancerre, Domaine Vacheron

Loire, France 2015/16
  • £55.00
Highly-praised producer living up to the domaine’s reputation with a confident and expressive wine. Racy top notes of greengages and fresh cut grass meet on a mineral edge. (Walter Hicks) Average Critics’ score is 90 pts. Roger Voss of Wine Enthusiast gave this wine 95pts., said it is structured, dense and likely to age well. The Loire valley is dominated by plantings of Sauvignon Blanc, and the Vacherons, with 40 hectares, own one of the largest properties and one of the few to hold cellars in the actual town of Sancerre.
