Domaine Laporte

Domaine Laporte was founded in 1850 in the village of Saint-Satur, and run until 1986 by René Laporte. René was a pioneer in producing low-yield, high-quality Sancerre during a time of overproduction. Henri Bourgeois, A well-regarded winegrower from Chavignol, purchased the estate from René, keeping the old vineyard, cellar and house – and maintaining the excellent reputation. Now under the watchful eyes of Henri’s two grandsons, Arnaud and Cedric Bourgeois, Domaine Laporte is one of the most highly respected estates in the Loire Valley. It covers an area of 30 hectares, and the flagship Sancerre comes from some of the finest vineyards in the appellation.
Le Rochoy, a 10-hectare vineyard owned exclusively by Laporte, is carved out of the flint hillside overlooking the Loire River. It is typically one of the first sites picked in the appellation, and offers grapes with wonderful ripeness and incredible mineral expression from Silex soils, the rarest terroir in Sancerre. La Comtesse comes from the slopes of the Côte des Monts Damnés, resulting in a wine that is rich, well-structured and will improve for many years in the bottle.
Laporte is a certified organic producer and the wine here is made in a very traditional, natural way, employing organic methods and always ensuring a sense of purity and excellence. In addition to Sancerre, Laporte produces beautiful Pouilly-Fumé.
