Sancerre Domaine Vacheron Les Romains Organic 2022 Overview

-
Domaine Vacheron was established in 1900. The Vacherons without question are Sancerre’s leading winemaking clan. From the family’s pioneering work in identifying and exploring the region’s top terroirs to their leading position in biodynamic viticulture, there are few if any artisans today in Sancerre as exacting or as respected. The estate’s peerless older vines, planted and cultivated by generations of family members, are cared for fastidiously. Yet it is the their single- vineyard wines—terroir-based selections recalling the painstaking work of Burgundian monks in the Côte d’Or—that have shown the world the heights and complexity that Sancerre can reach.

A full south-facing vineyard. ‘Les Romains’ was one of the domaine’s first ‘single-vineyard’ bottlings, the first vintage was 1997. Pure flint soils, rich in fossilized material; such soils contribute a minerality and smokiness to the wine.

Weather in 2022: The growing season began with a relatively cool but not overly harsh winter, which saw little in the way of rain. The season then mellowed into a reasonably uneventful spring bar some April frosts, which failed to deal any significant damage as budburst had yet to happen, although it was still early by several weeks along with flowering as late spring quickly warmed up. June fortunately saw some rain before July’s high temperatures set in. For the rest of the summer and the growing season, hot sun was the order of the day, which kept the grapes both rot- and disease-free, while ushering them to phenolic ripeness. As a result, the harvest was unsurprisingly early but also a great success with relatively high yields. The resulting fruit was rich and ripe at the time of picking, while still retaining the all-important acidity and aromatics.

Harvest is exclusively by hand. Grapes are fermented on indigenous yeasts in a combination of stainless-steel or cement tanks and wooden, open-top fermenters.

Technical Information:

Tasting Note: Aromas of ripe, white peaches, floral notes of hawthorn & acacia, and a mineral flintiness. Concentrated gooseberry fruit flavours, all carefully balanced by a rich smokiness and steely dry palate with a lingering salinity. A mineral, elegant and long finish.
