Reviews 95 points John Gilman "offers up a lovely nose of lime, gooseberry, raw almond, a complex base of limestone minerality, early notes of Chartreuse-like botanicals, lime peel and just a wisp of white pepper. On the palate the wine is bright, racy and full-bodied, with a tightly-knit personality, a lovely core, a very complex base of soil, excellent focus and balance and a long, refined and very promising finish.

About Edmond Vatan

Vatan's Clos la Neore is a hidden gem among Sancerre wines, its tiny 4,000 bottle annual production only recently drawing the attention of sommeliers and connoisseurs worldwide. This sought-after Sauvignon Blanc comes from the small plot of Les Monts Damnes, considered Sancerre's most extraordinary vineyard.

The terroir of Les Monts Damnes is renowned for its ideal south-southeast exposure and soils composed purely of terres blanches. The near-vertical slopes of the vineyard give it its name, which translates to "damned mountain."

Vatan's Clos la Neore is a complex and long-lived wine, consistently remarkable. The winemakers employ ancient techniques that allow the grape and terroir to shine, resulting in elegant and precise wines with fresh, herbaceous, floral, and fruity notes and a signature touch of salinity on the finish. This wine is truly singular and cannot be fully described, it must be experienced first hand.
