Thrilling Pinot Noir
A beautiful ruby-crimson colour with reflections of black cherry. The aromatics in are intense, with roasted, grilled and toasted notes dominating. On the attack, the wine is clean, with a roundness giving a delicious unctuousness. This is followed by the tannins, already soft and silky throughout. The Cuvée Silex is a full-bodied red Sancerre vin de prestige with character. Its finish shows classic notes of maturity (caramel, fruit compote).

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
A 17th Century family owned Domaine that is causing a real stir in Sancerre with Matthieu Delaporte at the helm. In Matthieu’s own words “precision, balance and complexity are the watchwords of our cuvées with each delivering a strong sense of their individual terroirs, marked by considerable minerality, power and freshness”. This is the most perfect summation of their complex, intriguing and delicious wines.
