Domaine Vacheron, Sancerre

“Certified as a biodynamic wine producer for ten years now, Domaine Vacheron is surely one of the highlights in the Sancerrois. Lead by Jean-Dominique and his cousin Jean-Laurent, the family domaine produces a range of different single vineyard Sancerres in white, red and pink that reflects not just the rich variety of the terroirs in the region, but the concept of the cousins who seem to demonstrate that the Sancerrois is no less fascinating than the Côte d'Or.”

Stephen Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate October 2016

From one of the oldest established families in Sancerre, cousins Jean-Laurent and Jean-Dominique Vacheron have been fighting to regain their position at the top of the appellation. The recent vintages have been exceptional and equally good for the reds as for the whites. Certified biodynamic, the Vacherons are now seen as equals to Alphonse Mellot. Having two or three great producers competing at the top is fantastic for the appellation

Le Paradis is an explosively aromatic wine, dense on the palate with a broad mineral character kept in check by a sinuous acidity that keeps things lively.

100% Sauvignon Blanc
