2017 Cul de Beaujeu Rouge Chavignol Domaine Vincent Delaporte
Domaine Delaporte are the only growers growing Pinot Noir on the Cul de Beaujeu - one of Chavignol’s most famous vineyards, a steep, southeast-facing slope with an incline of up to 60 degrees The vineyard was established by the monks of Beaujeu in the Middle Ages. Hand-picked grapes, fermented in stainless-steel but run through malo-lactic in oak and aged for a year before bottling. Precise, crisp red fruits, a silky touch, deceptively light and cooly refreshing. Anywhere a lighter Burgundy would normally find itself, the Cul de Beaujeu will charm and refresh with ease. L&S (Sep 2019)

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).
