Domaine Vincent Delaporte Sancerre Silex 2018

SKU: PP19100246

Why we love it

We particularly enjoy the wine from flinty (aka. Silex) soil type. This soil type encourages a slower maturation of the grapes, which allows a later harvest and an improved resistance to disease. 

It comes from >50 years old Sauvignon Blanc vines; it is cultivated with traditional yet sustainable methods. 

Tasting Notes

Pale gold in colour, the Silex Blanc is an elegant embodiment of sauvignon blanc characteristic of the Sancerre region, with a nose of little white flowers. In the mouth, it is silky, round and delicate, with a pleasing richness and complexity on the back palate. The finish is marked with mellow notes of wood (acacia, well-ripened exotic fruits, plus hints of minerals).
