Sancerre Les Grandmontains Blanc, Domaine Laporte
France – 2018
Tasting Note: The white Sancerre Les Grandmontains is characterised by delicate aromas of ripe fruit. In the mouth, the balance is remarkable. This wine has a round, velvety and silky structure, which ends with a mentholated freshness. On the palate, the final note is long and elegant.
Food Matching: This wine is particularly appreciated with grilled fish, shellfish and even with frog legs.
Vineyard: In the 12th century, Etienne, Count of Sancerre gave a slope located in Ménétréol to the religious order of Grandmontains. Aware of the exceptional quality of the soil, they developed wine-growing on this slope. In 1997, Laporte acquired a vineyard of 4.8 situated in the heart of this slope whose ground is composed of clay and is rich in stones. This wine is certified organic farming.
Vinification: After pneumatic pressing and after racking at low temperature, the wine ferments in stainless steel tanks at temperatures ranging from 18°C to 20°C. No malolactique fermentation is used. The wine is then matured on its fine lees until bottling in June
