Domaine Serge Laporte, Sancerre Rosé
GRAPES: Pinot Noir
TASTING NOTES: A delicately elegant wine, this Sancerre Rosé is crafted from 100% Pinot Noir from 15-year-old vines in parcels of argile-calcaire (clay-limestone soils). The argile-calcaire is excellent for Pinot Noir because it creates wines that are structured and long-lived, meaning you can enjoy this wine now or hold it for years to come. Vivid and silky, with aromas of candied fruits, strawberries, and citrus, this wine has a racy acidity and a long, lingering finish. We’re team #RoséAllDay AND all year -- this bottle will compliment a range of foods, no matter what you’re serving. While it goes with pretty much anything, we’d suggest enjoying it with baked salmon, rich charcuterie, or homemade tater tots.
About the Producer
A seventh-generation farming family, Domaine Serge Laporte prides themselves on making terroir-driven wines that are produced with an eco-environmental approach. Taking care of the land for generations to come is part of their DNA. Domaine Serge Laporte boasts vineyards of a distinctive high caliber -- the vines are located on beautifully exposed hillside properties, with punishly steep slopes referred to as “Les Mont Damnés” (“the damned mountains”) that ultimately create the perfect situation for developing intense flavors, rich, full wines, and complexity. (Although, they make vineyard management a bit more difficult!)
Today, Guillaume Laporte runs the helm as winemaker. Grapes are hand-harvested, then vinified parcel by parcel so that each area’s unique flavors and aromas become accentuated in the wine. Vines on their property are grown in two distinct soil types: caillotes, a pebbly chalk and limestone mix with little soil that’s optimal for the varietals, producing dry, fresh, and fruit-forward wine with finesse. Alternatively, some parcels are in argile-calcaire, which is a mixture of limestone, clay, and siliceous sandy soil that grows structured wines with pronounced minerality and agability. Together, this is one of the best combinations you can have in a Sancerre wine.
