Un sancerre blanc qui se révèle délicieux aussi bien à l’apéritif qu’au cours d’un repas. Sa fraîcheur et sa finesse requièrent des mets fins, eux aussi. More info

This Sancerre’s pale golden colour is the first sign of its elegance and finesse. It has excellent length on the palate and exudes fragrant white flower and citrus aromas. A single variety Sauvignon, the wine is produced from a certified organic parcel of chalk, flint and marl soil. The grapes are harvested by hand, and the wine is fermented without artificial raising agents and aged on the lees for one year. Taken as an aperitif, this wine’s beautiful acidity certainly excites the taste buds. It is also a superb wine to drink with food, and pairs delightfully with shellfish, grilled fish, and white meat.

Sancerre Vacheron et Fils (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 11°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Darnes de saumon farcies, Omble-chevalier meunière, Rillettes de maquereau et de saumon.

Information about domain Vacheron

For many years Domaine Vacheron was run by two brothers, Jean-Louis and Denis (President of the Union Viticole Sancerroise), who were like chalk and cheese. Today, their sons Jean-Louis and Jean-Laurent are at the helm and they converted the 42 hectare property to biodynamic viticulture when they took over. Grass grows between the rows of vines and the earth is tilled with a plough or a mattock. The crops are sprayed with a biodynamic preparation using five highly sophisticated tractors which are controlled by computer to minimise doses. The domain owns two high-quality terroirs in the commune of Sancerre which produce grapes for specific cuvées available in both white (3/4 of output) and red. "Les Belles Dame" red was first made in 1995 and "Les Romains" white in 1997. This second cuvée is produced from a very flinty terroir. With its legacy of quality, thanks to the previous generation, and the two young cousins’ commitment to an equally demanding approach, Domaine Vacheron is unlikely to be toppled from its place at the heights of the appellation any time soon.
