Domaine VINCENT DELAPORTE Sancerre "Silex" 2021 (White)

Region: Loire Valley - France

Grapes: Sauvignon Blanc

Tastings 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. On the palate, it is silky, round and delicate, with a pleasing richness and complexity on the back palate. It has a good balance between alcohol and acidity levels in the mouth, marked with mellow notes of wood (acacia, well-ripened exotic fruits with minerals in the background). Balance and refinement are the underpinnings of the Cuvée Silex.

About the Winery
Since 2010 Vincent Delaporte's grandson, Matthieu Delaporte, has been fully focused on further improving the Domaine's wines. A more organic approach has been adopted in the vineyards with herbicides no longer being used. Yields have been lowered, and oak is being judiciously introduced to the vinification.
