Domaine Vacheron Sancerre Le Paradis, Loire, France 2020
VINTAGE : 2020
COUNTRY : France
REGION/APPELLATION : Loire, Sancerre
VARIETALS : Sauvignon Blanc
The Vacheron cousins own 1 hectare of vines in the lieu-dit of Le Paradis. Their plot is on a steep south-facing slope with shallow limestone soils. The soil is so thin and poor that the vine roots grow deeply into fissures in the bedrock below. 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.
