2010 Sancerre Blanc from Domaine Vacheron

The 2010 Sancerre from Domaine Vacheron is very much in the style of the vintage – very clean grapefruit flavours and mineral. Arguably very much in the classic Loire style, although with more warmer vintages such as 2009, 2006, 2005 and 2003 it is not clear now if classic really has meaning now. I really like its clean purity but CRM finds it a little too austere.  

The Vacheron wines are imported into the UK by Stevens Garnier and this Sancerre is available from Waitrose at £18.79.
