Domaine Tabordet Sancerre Rouge 2016

Brothers Yvon and Pascal Tabordet took over their 2.5 hectares of family vineyards in 1981, in the Verdigny district 3km from Sancerre. In 1988 they bought an additional eight hectares of vines in neighbouring Pouilly Fumé,on prime flinty slopes, making this the larger part of the estate. Yvon married primary school teacher Anne-Marie , and Pascal (by a stroke of efficient good fortune) married Anne-Marie's sister Marie-Laure, who now works full time with her husband and son. The estate is very much a family business, run in a traditional spirit, but with the latest winemaking technology.


The Pinot Noir vines are pruned following the Guyot method. A green harvest takes place at the end of August to regulate the number of grapes per vinestock. The grapes are then harvested between mid September and early October, once they have reached optimal ripeness. Located in the heart of Sancerre on the left bank of the Loire river, the vineyards have white argilo-calcareous soils and Caillottes, typical of the Sancerre appellation.


The grapes were placed in vats immediately after the harvest. Several pump overs and "pigeage" or punching down of the cap took place in order to extract the colour and create the structure of the wine. This took place over a two week period. Following a malolactic fermentation, the wine was matured in stainless steel vats to preserve its fragrance.

Tasting Note

Made from Pinot Noir, this is a wonderful example of a Sancerre rouge, with notes of wild strawberry and hints of cherry on the nose, this medium bodied wine shows brambly fruit on the palate, a smooth texture and are freshing finish.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.


What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!


What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 


What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
