Domaine Laporte Sancerre Rosé Les Grandmontains 2020
We sort of wish it was Thanksgiving again -- this would be just killer with that particular meal for sure. Although honestly, it’s terrific all by itself in our glass as we write this! A cool bottle to have around and straight-up delish!
Laporte is based in Chavignol, a small village in Sancerre that takes great pride in its wines. Laporte happens to be just down the road from one of the most highly regarded producers in all of Sancerre, Francois Cotat.
This is like Barry White in a pink tux, smooth and seductive. With a salmon color and crisp aromas of white cherry, red berries, stones and flowers...this is all class. The flavors are bright and fresh, with baritone undertones of red berry and mineral that cut the center and leave you ready for your next glass.
Speaking of that, this is already flying out the door...grab it while it's here!
PAIRING IDEAS: Got a turkey? Go for it! Although, a perfectly roasted chicken would be amazing with this! Cook it with a bunch of mushrooms and thyme and such, and make a light cream sauce with the drippings. Here’s a solid recipe for something along those lines (replace the tarragon with thyme, unless you love it like we do). Perfect with this pinot-based rose!
MUSIC SUGGESTIONS: Dave Grohl covering Van Halen’s “Jump” is a fun one that dropped yesterday. He’s got a whole portfolio of these from the “Hanukkah Sessions”. Google it to find your jam, he’s probably covered it! Or Barry White :)
