This six generation estate is situated in the village of Chavignol and run by Guillame Laporte. He is a happy, energetic vigneron who always
seems to be smiling and joking around. His vineyards are located on several different sites surrounding the town with exceptional exposure
and unique terroirs defined by two distinct soil types known as “Terres Blanches” and “Les Caillotes.” Terres Blanches is dominated by
calcareous clay with Kimmeridgian limestone. Wines produced from sites with these soils have distinctive power and substantial body. Les Caillotes on the other hand is mostly gravel and limestone and wines produced from these sites are delicate and fruity. Guillaume harvests and vinifies the lots separately in order to accentuate their individual flavors and aromas. Finally, the wines are carefully blended to produce classic, balanced Sancerre.
Light golden color. Enticing nose with notes of fruit cocktail, a touch of flint and floral undertones. An expressive, savory palate with fresh
melon, fig and citrus flavors. Crisp acidity and a long, pleasant finish.
Seafood, shellfish, poultry, pork and fresh goat cheese.
