Origin France, Loire
Sub-district Sancerre
Village Chavignol
ABV 13.5%

2018 was a warm year and so I am currently appreciating the 2017 Loire sauvignon blancs that are still around. This one comes from the silex soils of the famous, steep Mont Damnés vineyard close to the village of Chavignol and has great precision and depth. Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph (Dec 2019)

A pure and quite powerful style from one of Sancerre's most famous vineyards near the village of Chavignol. From this 'silex' soil Mathieu crafts a beautifully defined wine with lemon pith, lovely minerality showing in the steely core, then hints of herb and bright citrus once more on the mouthfilling palate, persistent and long.L&S(Nov 2018)

Slight golden notes. Very attractive apple skin with vanilla pod. Crunchy and fresh with real bite and weight. Not overtly Sauvignon at all, almost more Chenin-like with that apple character and honeyed notes. Fresh and layered with excellent intensity of fruit.

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).
