Really polished and seductive style with mulberry, dark cherry and damson on the nose. The palate is silky and ripe with dark berry fruits once more, all back by a hint of hedgerow and mocha, then underpinned by a lovely balancing acidity. Drinking range: 2016 - 2020 Rating: 91 L&S (Nov 2016)

Located in Chavignol, this domaine has been handed down from father to son since the 17th century. Today Vincent’s grandson, Mathieu Delaporte, is in charge and he’s taking the wine to another level. It’s a fuller style, with ample red and black cherry fruit, yet for all its weight, it doesn’t sacrifice any elegance. With firm but ripe tannins, this is approachable now but should develop nicely over the next five years. Drinking range: 2018 - 2022 Rating: 92 Christelle Guibert, Decanter(May 2018)
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. 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).
