'Delicate and elegant, with ripe, bright fruit aromas and earthy as well as orange notes on the intense but refined nose, the 2019 Sancerre Chambrates is a tight, intense and tensioned wine whose vitality, finesse and elegance combined with a dense fruit core and sustainable mineral grip reminds me of dry limestone Riesling crus from Alsace, Pfalz or the hilly lands of the Wonnegau in Rheinhessen, Germany. This is a beautiful vin de terroir. Highly stimulating and with lingering salinity, this is a Sancerre ready to be served now and over this decade. The grapes were picked between September 12th and October 4th. Drink 2021-2037.' – Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, 94/100

'A mouthwatering style that's starting to settle into the bottle, shaking off its primary excitedness. The 2019 Sancerre Chambrates is very satisfying, lick-your-lips stuff. It provides a seamless texture, delicate nectarine and citrus-like fruit flavors and, crucially, harmony. Drink 2021-2028.' – Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous, 94/100

Producer information Domaine Vacheron, owned by two cousins, Jean-Laurent and Jean-Dominique Vacheron, is a biodynamic winery and is one of Sancerre’s elite properties. Owning some of the most coveted parcels in the appellation, the cousins produce both white and red Sancerre of amazing purity and definition. ‘In fact, the rich and powerful whites belong to the best Sancerres you can find’ – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. The property is farmed to 34 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc and 11 hectares of Pinot Noir. No synthetic material is used in the vineyard, grapes are harvested by hand, and only compost is used as fertilizer. They take a Burgundian approach to winemaking, by vinifying according to parcels and blending according to vintage.
