Domaine Vacheron Sancerre Les Romains 2020
|Region||France, Loire Valley, Sancerre|
Aromas of crisp pears, lemon zest, wildflowers. Stone fruit and citrus, with a finish that echoes the terroir's smoke and sea- salt notes. Complex and very age-worthy. Pair with rich seafood; white meats; cream sauces.
This wine shows richness and intensity, balancing acidity with ripe white and apricot fruits. The wine is delicious now but will be even better from 2023.
Les Romains is a vineyard with its feet in flint to the east of the fault line in Sancerre. The 2020 Sancerre Les Romains begins with a fruity and open welcome, blossoming and silken in the mouth before tying the wine up; the flint influence acts like the belt on a pair of trousers tightening up the middle and leaving a sensation of sinew and length with a fine nettley fragrance.
