Edmond Vatan, Sancerre Clos Neore
Edmond Vatan is a minuscule and highly sought-after domaine in Sancerre, renowned for producing a single cuvée of Sauvignon Blanc that is capable of very long ageing. Fans of the wines of Francois Cotat will want to try this.
The Sancerre Blanc Clos la Neore, made from a single hectare parcel of low-yielding old vines in the prestigious Mont Damnés vineyard, in Chavignol.
Harvesting doesn’t usually begin until after neighbouring domains have already finished. The wines are made using very traditional methods in old neutral oak barrels, with just one racking, and are bottled without fining or filtration.
Production is around 500 cases per year so the wine is incredibly rare.
Edmond’s daughter Anne Vatan-Foucault, who is married to Nadie Foucault of Clos Rougeard fame, has been in charge since 2008.
