Quite deep in colour with bright red fruits filling the nose, cherries, redcurrants and strawberries, reflecting the strength of the 2015 growing season. Lovely texture on the palate, with rosehip, red cherries and then a lovely bright balancing acidity, a great food Rose. L&S (Mar 2016)

Bright, perfumed and intense, with attractive strawberry and red fruit on the nose and palate, underlined by a leafy character that is lively and zippy. Slightly tart on the finish but it has a good deal of concentrated flavour supported by acidity and minerality that adds silkiness and texture. Drinking range: 2016 - 2017 Rating: 93 Decanter Magazine (Aug 2016)
Pink Sancerre with more colour than the average and also more vibrant and expressive Pinot Noir character. Lovely red-berry intensity, silky texture and soft, fresh acidity. Rating: 90 The Wine Gang - www.thewinegang.com (Apr 2016)
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 Matthieu is in charge, after a 'stage' at L&S in the summer of 2012, and taken over the winemaking role. They have recently incorporated the vines of Matthieu's uncle, giving them two new jewels in the crown, decent holdings in the Monts Damnés (white) and Cul de Beaujeu (red).
Matthieu has taken the domaine in the direction of organic farming, although he still hesitates over going for certification. He has stopped buying new barrels, and stopped using cultured yeasts, sometimes allowing malolactic fermentation to occur. Levels of sulphur are kept to the barest minimum.
