Domaine Delaporte

Chavignol Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Lean aromatic spot of light, clean, almost frosted lemon, lime juice, lime pith, and gooseberry aromas. Chalky. With zippy, bright lemon zest, nectarine, dried starfruit, green-white underripe blackberries, black currant leaf, and grapefruit pith. Amazing Sancerre with buoyancy and ethereal grace.

Cuvée des Ceps Centenaires Comte Leloup de Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Melon de Bourgogne 2012

Vintage 2012 / very rich for a Muscadet, probably because it is made from ‘vignes centenaires’ (old vines, more than 100 years old). The smell is a mix of minerality and quince. Soft attack, fine acidity with citrus impression. Perfect balance. It is a shame that #muscadet is underrated. Beautiful #loirewine for hot days. #melondebourgogne — 2 years ago

Les Cent Boisselées Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2017

9.0

This is great because it’s so typical of #loirecabfranc #loirewine #cabernetfranc #bourgueil and it’s clean and has tertiaries and everything lovely about a Cab Franc, crushed red peppercorns, potpourri and red cherries. — 2 months ago

Clos des Tabardieres Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Melon de Bourgogne 2013

Vintage 2013 / #muscadetsevreetmaine with #elevéenfûtdechêne barrel ripening. I got more impressed by the wine during dinner. Pear and melon in smell, vannilla in taste. Vibrant wine, nice as aperitive and went well with Dim Sum. Excellent with courgette/tomato from the oven and chicken. Good with the camembert afterwards. Good effort. #loirewine — a year ago

PN 1328 Pinot Noir

Vintage 2012 - a bit difficult, this wine. Yes it has #pinotnoir characteristics, but also very severe. This #vienne IGT gives a Bordeaux association. Really... Does not become more friendly with age. Or I have to wait longer. #loirewine second day: better bouquet with nice mocca tones, taste still the same — 2 years ago

Le K Vin de Pays de la Vienne Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage 2010 / I drank this wine for the first time in Auberge du Bon Laboureur in Chenonceaux and was so surprised I decided to drive to the domaine next day. Visited it once more with winefriends afterwards. Frédéric Brochet is doing great work in a part of France, the #Vienne, that is not known for its wines. This 2010 from Cabernet is developing excellent. Harmonious, red bell pepper. Went very well with Cantonese beef and paksoi. A real gem for the cellar with good perspective. #loirewine — a year ago

Vouvray Demi-Sec Chenin Blanc 1990

Vintage 1990 - yellow golden colour, very vital. Beautiful smell with quince dominant, also impressions of honey, ananas, Turkish Fruit, hay, quite complex. This #cheninblanc is mouthfilling with (now at the age of 28 years) dominant bitters with a toffee-alike aftertaste. #Vouvray that delivers! Actually, I was surprised/shocked to find this bottle in the cellar corner. I do not keep my demi-sec thát long. Beautiful starter of saturdaynight diner with wild boar paté. #loirewine — 2 years ago
