Handed down from generation to generation since the 17th century, and managed today by Jean-Yves Delaporte and his son Matthieu, this family estate of 33 hectares, with little intervention in the vineyard, is regular in quality and is located in Chavignol, a village in the heart of the Sancerre region. The vines are carefully cultivated and present a great originality with 50 different plots and 35% of the vines on flint soils, a rare proportion in the Sancerrois.
A Sancerre with a clear robe and golden reflections; a very intense and crystalline nose with aromas of white fruits and a touch of citrus fruits; in the mouth, an ample and round attack, then mineral, with a saline finish. Less adapted to seafood than the traditional Sancerre, it will prefer dishes such as firm-fleshed sea fish in sauce, scallop puffs, pan-fried foie gras...
