Grapes Pinot Noir
Colour Red
Origin France, Loire
Sub-district Sancerre
Village Chavignol
ABV 13%

Another of Mathieu's Lieux dits this time Pinot Noir from south east facing vineyards at 250 metres altitude close to the village of Chavignol. Here we have a wine that takes everything up a notch with bold, bright damson, wild strawberry and dark cherry fruit, ripe and silky once more, but fuller in the mouth richer tannins, but that gorgeous bright acidity once more giving balance. These wines really have hit the sweet spot.

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. His wines were in Steven Spurrier's selection for the Caves de la Madeleine, where I had worked several years earlier, and the London end of which Patrick was running at the time. They have featured in the Lea & Sandeman selection since our very first list. The domaine passed to Vincent's son Jean-Yves and his wife Nathalie, and now their son Mathieu has joined them, after a 'stage' at L&S in the summer of 2012, and taken over the winemaking role. They have recently incorporated the vines of Mathieu's uncle, giving them two new jewels in the crown, decent holdings in the Monts Damnés (white) and Cul de Beaujeu (red). CAL
