The Vacheron 2010 Sancerre Chambrates represents the inaugural bottling dedicated to nearly 20 year old vines (largely the estate's own selection massale) on a plateau above the rockier thinner-soiled Paradis. "This is a bit different on account of being raised 60% in barrique but the rest in wooden upright" relates Jean-Dominique Vacheron which I find amusing given that only a couple of years ago that description would have closely fit "the usual" regimen of elevage chez Vacheron! Imagine the briny complex liquor of oysters mingled with nut oils shrimp shell reduction lime and grapefruit. Tart yellow plum and piquant plum pit emerge as one works this around in the mouth and the finish is vibrant and compulsively saliva- and next-sip inducing. I suspect that this wine will intrigue provoke and delight for a decade. --- David Schildknecht
