Domaine Vacheron Sancerre Blanc 2022
Their Domaine Vacheron Sancerre “village” bottling draws from both terroirs to create a subtle, mineral and completely satisfying wine.
One of the few estates in Sancerre to harvest entirely by hand this wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in tank for at least 4 months before bottling.
