SANCERRE

2021 Rosé Chavignol Domaine Vincent Delaporte

IN STOCK
Grapes Pinot Noir
Colour Rosé
Origin France, Loire
Sub-district Sancerre
Village Chavignol
ABV 13%

100% Pinot Noir rosé from the Loire valley. Pale, fresh and really dry with gentle strawberry notes. Nice and pale but with a redder hue than Provence rosés. Of course, it's a charming warm day refresher, but has enough to it to accompany a light supper, a simple salad or a cold salmon platter. L&S (May 2022)

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

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.

The Queen's Platinum Jubilee | Mixed case & Cookbook

What better way to help celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee (and the long weekend) than with this specially selected case and beautiful cookbook.
From the aptly named Platine 1er Cru Extra Brut NV Champagne from Nicolas Maillart, to the (tongue firmly in cheek here) your Maga-sty Godello and not forgetting (getting seriously tenuous now) some Le Petit Roy-al, there is something for all palates.
Being serious for a moment though, this is a fabulous collection of wines that should make any (street) party go with a twist and a twirl.
