Description

Critical Acclaim:

There is a good depth of flavor here, a wine that’s both firmly structured with hints of coffee as well as red hedgerow fruits. A fine balance with the acidity and tannins gives the wine a chance to age for 3–5 years. Score: 90 points -- Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, Oct 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

About Winery:

Tucked in the middle of the Sancerre region is Domaine Vincent Delaporte and Sons, a family business which has been passed from father to son since the 17th century. The winery is located in the charming village of Chavignol, also famous for its goat cheese. Here at Domaine Vincent Delaporte, we manage and are involved in every step of the production process, from the planting of the vines and the grape harvest, to the vinification and distribution of our wines.

Tasting Notes:

The deep red wines are a beautiful purple ruby colour and they develop very ripe red fruit flavours (cherry, blackberry and raspberry).

Upon tasting the wine, the aroma is intense and flowing. The scent of red cooked fruits and torrefaction (significant roasted qualities) dominates. One can also detect a point of graphite and a nuance of cinnamon. Very round and very flexible as it enters the mouth, it affirms itself with persistence then tight tannins and then with sharp edges. Very beautiful retro-olfaction with flavours of smoke and plum. This wine is ready to drink but could also be laid down for some years. 

As a young wine, it can be served cool at (12 °C) with charcuterie, fish with firm flesh as well as white meats. This wine will also go very well with roasted meats. It will reach its full flavour at the end of three years (serve at 15 °C) with game and certain cheeses.

Viticultural Notes:

The Delaporte red wine is produced from pinot noir vines which range in age from 21 to 40 years old. Seventy percent of these vines are planted in clay with flints soil. The remaining thirty percent of the vines are planted in limestone soil. These vines are grown according to reasoned culture principles, which provide a maximum of respect for the ecosystem and the environment.
