Lucien Crochet Sancerre Blanc AOC 2019
|Available in store:||Check availability|
One of the first estates that Neal Rosenthal began importing in the 1980’s, Domaine Lucien Crochet is located in one of the most important villages of Sancerre. The grapes for this basic cuvée of Sancerre are sourced from the vineyards in 3 villages. After harvest, fermentation is done in temperature controlled tank and sits in contact with the fine lees for a considerable period of time with racking being done late in the spring following harvest. The wine is made to be fresh and reflect the classic terroir of the region showing off notes of tangerine, lemon, some restrained tropical fruit and the hint of wet chalk and pepper that the soil offers the vines. The vintage was warm and the bright and fruity notes of the wine certainly reflect that heat.
