Laporte Sancerre 'Le Rochoy' 2017

Domaine Laporte was founded in 1850 by the Laporte and Bourgeois families, two prominent names in Sancerre. Now headed by Henri Bourgeouis’ two grandsons, Domaine Laporte organically farms nearly 30 hectares across some of the region’s best growing sites. Fruit for ‘Le Rochoy’ comes from mineral-rich silex soils, creating a citrus-driven wine loaded with flavors of grapefruit, lemon zest, and flint.

Sauvignon Blanc

Zippy aromatic vigorous white most readily associated with France (Sancerre; Pouilly-Fumé; Bordeaux Blanc) but truly a world-beater thanks to its citrusy grip and telltale herbaceous aroma.
