    September 12, 2019 - Herbaceous bouquet with veggies and creamy notes. Initially feels fresh on palate but with time and temperature, alcohol is too noticiable (15 avb), plus quite heavy, perhaps woody and a bitter, disturbing note on finish. Certainly well made, seems a Sauvignon in white burgundy style. Third time drinking this wine, and just not my cup of tea.

    August 22, 2019 - Tasted blind side by side with 2010 Didier Dagueneau Silex and the 2009 Edmond et Anne Vatan Sancerre was much more powerful and intense on ripe stone fruits, glossy wax and rich butter. A whopping 15% alcohol Sancerre but perfectly balanced. (92/100)

    May 27, 2018 - Singular producer. 09 proves the last of the ripe Vatan era. High octane, saline toned white pit fruit. Root vegetable undertones. Some lactic quality in the finish. Nothing to compare this to. Had some cotat Sancerre last night. Probably closest thing to this experience but still a few steps behind. This wine is a wild ride. Open a few hours before you want to make your assessment.

    January 21, 2018 - Vatan Vertical (TDS): A rich and ripe nose with delicious white fruits and steaks of mineral and hay - but this is mostly about that flamboyant fruit. Ripe and round, more so than any of the other wines. Still in balance but not quite as electric as the best bottles tonight.

    January 21, 2018 - Vatan-a-thon at TDS (Chicago, IL): Woof, 15% alcohol on the nose and it shows before I've even taken a sip. The flavours are excellent - again classic Vatan, perhaps a bit riper and more perfumed in intensity than the other vintages, but the alcohol adds a light spirity sensation to the nose and a much heavier, almost glyceral mouthfeel that shows some heat on the finish. Not my thing.
