Domaine Delaporte is located in Sancerre, in the center of the tiny, famous and very pretty village of Chavignol, two hours south of Paris. The Delaporte family has been established in the heart of the Sancerre region since the 17th century. The estate has been handed down from father to son over several generations.
Their 2017 rosé is made from pinot noir grapes that grow on vines at least fifteen years old. Sixty percent are planted in argilo-siliceous soil and the rest in limestone soil. These vines are worked according to sustainable agricultural methods, in order to show maximum respect for the ecosystem and the environment. Fruit-packed, it exhibits the best characteristics of a young Sancerre rosé, with raspberry and wild peach aromas. Full and round in the mouth with lively freshness, this vibrant Pinot pairs well with charcuterie, spicy dishes, paella and summer vegetables.
