The Oddbins Take

This wine is drier than Jack Dee on a desert island, having just seen a mangy mutt licking its lips after drinking the last drop of water from the island’s only oasis. Yes, this wine is dry. But before you raise your hands in despair, shouting 'I need more than just dryness in a wine!', let us tell you about the gooseberries. More than that, let us tell you about the lemon, the lime… the delicate hints of honey. These are beautiful flavours, my friends, and they maketh for a beautiful wine.

Vacheron is a family-run, forward-looking winery. Their vineyards are planted on three different soils - flint, chalk and pebbles (cailloux) - accounting for the exceptional quality of this Sancerre. Since the wines are vinified and stored separately, the balance of the final cuvée can be adjusted to achieve the best style before bottling. The Vacherons maintain that tradition need not be a handicap, nor should it halt progress, but remain a constant point of reference.
