Aromas suggest grapefruit zest and gunflint; in the mouth the wine is pure and fresh, with plenty of mineral energy and citrus-inspired flavors. This is classic Sancerre—limpid and clean, with lots of freshness and lovely energy.
This fresh, racy white exhibits a floral edge, backed by hints of talc, white peach and green fig. Light, but pure and persistent through the finish.
From a January bottling – needless to say, the first of this cuvee's many (all, though, representing essentially the same assemblage) – the Vacheron 2011 Sancerre smells and is juicily suggestive on the palate of ripe honeydew melon tinged with mint and borage. Silken in texture and satisfyingly low-key, it finishes with persistent sap and imposing ripeness, if relatively little complexity let alone dynamic interplay.
