"While much of Sancerre lies on chalk soils, much of the Vacheron estate is planted on silex, which is flint over a clay and limestone base. This silex soil contains millions of tiny oceanic fossils, giving evidence that the entire region was once covered by the ocean. It produces wines of amazing minerality and acidity, with trademark smoky aromas. The famed "Les Romains" vineyard in Sancerre is made up exclusively of this soil type and the Vacheron family owns some of the more important holdings in these parcels." - Notes from the Producer
