Domaine Vincent Delaporte
Patrick and I first visited Vincent Delaporte in 1986, a memorable end to a long day, we finished by tasting older and older red and white Sancerres. One of the oldest whites still ranks as the only wine I have ever thought smelled of roast chicken! His wines were in Steven Spurrier's selection for the Caves de la Madeleine, the London end of which Patrick was running at the time. They have featured in the Lea and Sandeman selection since our very first list. The domaine passed to Vincent's son Jean-Yves and his wife Nathalie, and now their son Matthieu will be joining them.
The vines are cultivated with the greatest respect for environment and tradition.
The wines produced by the Domaine Vincent Delaporte show an outstanding constancy in both quality and style.CAL
