Wearing that strong delicacy. But more of a dude that dances ballet. Color was amazing. Really vivid and reflective, it was fully translucent and ruby nearing the edge

The subtle, sneaky concentration of this wine will surprise you. Pretty and delicate in the glass, very transparent garnet with pink hues at the rim. Aromatically it is graceful and expressive. Cherry kirsch, raspberry, pomegranate, orange rind and spiced tea flavors- also showing hints of underbrush and fennel. Surprisingly lush and sappy on the mid palate despite being so silky overall. First impression is like a feather on the palate, but it shows very convincing grip and dimension. Vacheron shows such deft restraint with their Pinot Noirs- opting for subtlety and choosing in favor of neutral barrique to support the delicate structure. I appreciate their commitment to this style, allowing a black skinned varietal to be the pure and unique transmitter of place and soil- not simply a pastiche of Burgundy. Their reds do not display the power and opulence of some others from the region, yet they can easily be mistaken for ethereal red Burgundy in a good vintage. This very well could have come from Volnay or even Chambolle. I opted not to decant, instead watching it unwind slowly over the next couple of nights. This is indeed a great cellaring wine so I’ll be in search of at least one more bottle which is a steal at less than $35. Good luck finding village Volnay with that price tag!

Too tart when first opened. Decanted and had a glass. Waited 3 hours then poured back into the bottle. The second day this was beautiful! Perfect balance, silky smooth, very pretty nose. Would love to have a case of this. SS

Nice. Very delicate color in the glass - pale red. Quite precise on the palate, with good earth and light crushed flowers / red fruit. Finish is soft and could a bit more acid but this is a nice example of Pinot Noir from Sancerre.

Raspberry and vegetal notes, young and delicate. Serious cellar prospect, already in balance.

Wonderful Sancerre. Great with sea bass, scallops, and burrata. Slight fruit and slight mineral - good wine.
