Vincent Delaporte Sancerre, 2013
Vincent Delaporte is a benchmark for Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc, and so it comes as little or no surprise that the 2013 is loveable.
Compared to other Sauvignon Blanc expressions globally, Sancerres tend to be leaner and drier. In general, Sancerres are dry as dry can get. Side by side with a Sauvignon Blanc from, say, New Zealand, one may be surprised that they’re even the same varietal. The palate of this wine boasts crisp white and yellow fruits, and a very marked minerality that is indicative of Loire Valley terroir. While light bodied, this wine isn’t shy or timid.
This would pair well when you’re in the mood to nosh – on milder cheeses like kaseri, and walnuts.
