Sancerre: Grown in the Loire Valley of France, Sancerre is considered by many to be the world's finest wine from the Sauvignon Blanc grape. The Kimmeridgian soils in the steeply-sloping vineyards of the village of Chavignol imbue the Sauvignon Blanc grapes with a pure, but assertive and intense style.
The wines of Sancerre, an appellation covering 4450 acres in the Loire Valley, are renowned for their depth and interest. The Pinot Noir and Sauvignon blanc vineyards are located on the banks of the Loire River, where the soil's high iron content contributes to the rich structure, flavor and longevity of the wines. The Laportes are dedicated to making the most of the region's potential and its wines are ideal accompaniments to an amazing array of cuisines. Very appealing.
