DOMAINE DELAPORTE DOMAINE DELAPORTE - Sancerre Chavignol Blanc - 2017

DOMAINE DELAPORTE Sancerre Chavignol Blanc 2017

See the wine detail page

17/20

Cool and youthful on the nose but fantastic depth on the palate, delivering a wad of tightly packed, restrained but ripe fruit with a long mineral spine. Crisp green apples and spicy pears and quince. Long, persistent, mouth-filling and hugely confident, going into a finish framed in stone. Bravo!
