Producer

Founded in 1850 Domaine Laporte sits on the edge of a valley known as La Cassure de Sancerre. This unique geological formation is divided into two distinct soil types. limestone hills on one side of the valley, flint hills on the opposite side. Grapes grown on each of these different soils are vinified accordingly by each parcel.This careful respect for soil typicity and place gives each wine an individual expression and personality. Owned by the incomparible Henri Bourgeois this show piece estate is renowned for being a top quality producer of both Pouilly Fume and Sancerre and has collected a bundle of awards and medals over the last decade or so.
