Light and tight and fresh. Long and really builds towards the end. Drinking range: 2018 - 2020 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Oct 2018)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Cool and youthful on the nose but fantastic depth on the palate, delivering a wad of tightly packed, restrained but ripe fruit with a long mineral spine. Crisp green apples and spicy pears and quince. Long, persistent, mouth-filling and hugely confident, going into a finish framed in stone. Bravo!

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).

This wine isn't currently part of a mixed case, but you can always browse our full selection of mixed cases here.
