Yet another new wine this vintage - from an especially well-illuminated, thin-soiled, stony hillside just south of Sancerre that once enjoyed celebrity as a cru - the Vacheron 2010 Sancerre Guigne-Chevres was raised 90% in a large Stockinger (Austrian Ybbstaler oak) upright and displays a near sweetness of ripe peach, yellow plum, lemon and grapefruit that contrasts dramatically with its immediate siblings. Silken and polished; palpably dense (little wonder perhaps, at yields of just 20 hectoliters per hectare); its sense of ripeness wedded to vivacious acidity and mouthwateringly saline savor, this practically explodes in finishing juiciness, and its ringing finish practically refuses to quit. It should remain stunning for a decade. Incidentally, it is in consideration of the excitement generated by acquisition of this parcel that the Vacherons decided to roll back the fruits of next door Grands Champs into their generic bottling.
