Created in 1850 in Saint-Satur, Domaine Laporte currently covers 21 hectares (52 acres). It is located at the foothills of the village of Sancerre and across its geological fault. Backing the village of Saint-Satur, at the edge of the Loire river, the vineyards have always represented the gateway of the Sancerre appellation.
Le Domaine du Rochoy is a 10-hectare slope, unique in the region of Sancerre. Soaking up the heat in the daytime, the flint rocks of the vineyard slowly cool in the night. Le " Grand Rochoy " is produced from the old vines of this prestigious slope which represents 2.5 ha.
After racking at low temperature, 50% of the wine ferments for 10 days in stainless steel tanks at temperatures ranging from 15° to 20°C (59° to 68°F) and the other 50% ferments in oak barrels. Neither yeasting nor malolactic fermentation is used. The wine is matured on its fine lees for 1 year then vacuum - bottled (exclusively in darkly tinted bottles). Only high-quality natural corks are used. The wine undergoes additional maturation for at least 6 months in the bottle before being offered for sale.
This Sancerre is particularly appreciated for its fullness, its complexity and its character.
