Vacheron's red 2017 Sancerre Belle Dame opens remarkably aromatic and ripe, with stewed or baked fruit aromas on the nose, tending toward plums rather than berries and a touch of caramel. With more aeration, the wine gets more precise, more flinty and piquant and reveals fresh cherry and potted strawberry aromas. Silky on the palate opening, this is a full-bodied, rich intense and persistent Pinot Noir with impressive concentration, freshness and finesse. What irritates me a bit: I would even accept it in a German Pinot Noir tasting not because of the oaky flavors (which I don't pick up here excessively) but due to the freshness, fruit profile and rather grippy finish. F├╝rst's Centgrafenberg comes to my mind, and that's meant as a compliment. Burgundy is widening its wings. Tasted in February 2021.
