This six-generation estate is situated in the village of Chavignol and owned by Guillaume Laporte. ‘Silex’ is a special bottling produced exclusively from a vineyard perched on a steep hill just below the castle walls of the town of Sancerre. The soil here is dominated by flint and differs completely from the clay and limestone that produce the regular Boursicottes Sancerre. A retired vigneron owns the vineyard, and following the friendly spirit of this growers’ community, he lets it out to young vignerons, including a 1.2-acre plot for Guillaume. The sustainably farmed vines average 30 years of age. No herbicides or pesticides are used.

Beautiful honeysuckle, elderflower and lime highlight the showy nose. Crisp, flinty minerality is balanced with refreshing verbena, candied peach and a touch of pink grapefruit on the long finish.

Certified Sustainable (HVE3)
