Sancerre: Domaine André Vatan 'Les Perriers' Blanc 2013

André and Arielle Vatan are two of our longest-serving and highly-regarded suppliers. Their 'Les Perriers' Sancerre wine is unfailingly reliable with classic elderflower and cut grass scents and a nervy, citrus-edged palate with minerally undertones and wonderful delineation. It shows Loire valley Sauvignon in a very pure light and is widely regarded as being a reference point for the appellation.

While it doesn’t demand food it is very versatile - English asparagus is the perfect accompaniment to the newly bottled wine.

Living in Mere, it is convenient to have such a wealth of knowledge and good wine on my doorstep. I am new to French wines, and the advice I have been giving has also been appropriate and any question, however nieve, is always answered honestly and with enthusiasm.

Continues to taste like a proper, traditional sancerre and not a modern/take on new world sauvignons.

What others think of this wine...

The Wine Gang - June 2014 says:

This has moved on a vintage since we last reviewed it, but it's just as blinding a wine. A true authentic Sancerre (none of these copycat NZ Sauvignon Blanc characters that we worryingly see more of coming out of the Loire), grassy, herbal, and with a rich tone through the middle of the palate despite the freshness to the flavours. Tingling and fresh, a Sancerre as nature intended. 91/100.
