It’s a New Day for Old World Sauvignon Blanc / The Ultimate Guide to French Rosé

Published on Wednesday, July 29, 2020 to 15h06

Domaine Delaporte 2017 Les Monts Damnés (Sancerre); $52, 94 points. A special cuvée from a special vineyard, this wine comes from a steep slope in the village of Chavignol. The intensity of the slope has produced a wine that revels in its minerality and tight texture as well as pepper, apple and citrus flavors. Drink through 2030. Vineyard Brands. Cellar Selection. –Roger Voss


Domaine Delaporte 2018 Rosé (Sancerre); $34, 90 points. This is a rich rosé, full bodied and packed with flavor. Ripe red berries are full of sweet juice, giving the wine acidity and a warm character. A touch of caramel comes through at the end. Drink the wine now. Vineyard Brands. french rose wine guide
