Sancerre BlancLes Grandmontains

The authentic expression of the clay soil which is rich in stones reveals a white Sancerre of extraordinary freshness: the soul of Sauvignon Blanc. Its finesse and roundness make it the ideal accompaniment to your finest dishes.

Vineyard

In the 12th century, Etienne, Count of Sancerre gave a slope located in Ménétréol to the religious order of Grandmontains. Aware of the exceptional quality of the soil, they developed vine-growing on this slope. In 1997, Laporte acquired a vineyard of 4.8 situated in the heart of this slope whose ground is composed of clay and is rich in stones.
