94 points Wine Advocate: “Vacheron’s 2013 Sancerre Chambrates comes from a plateau above the “Le Paradis” lieu-dit and is cultivated on limestone and red clay soils. Fermented and aged for 12 months in large French oak vats, this citrus-yellow Sancerre is even more intense and Riesling-like on the nose than the Le Pavé (the Vacheron cousins may forgive my comparison with Riesling ,since their Sancerres are certainly Sancerres and no Rieslings). With ripe and concentrated lemon and grapefruit flavors perfectly interwoven with melting stones flavors and stewed stone fruits on the nose, this is a full-bodied, rich and very complex yet also pure, refreshing and finesse-full Sancerre; it has an enormously long and fruit intense, almost lush yet elegant finish with lemon flavors. There is a first maturity here that gives this Chambrates its elegance and noble complexity. An impressive Sancerre indeed.”
