A serious Sancerre with layers of pear, lime, grapefruit and pineapple for a colorful and exhilarating palate. A strong sense of underlying chalkiness shows in the finish w/ refreshing persistence & depth. Will improve for a few years but is drinking lovely now.
Lucien Crochet Description:
Sourced from several parcels that are planted in rocky, white soils with an east-southeast exposure (including the “Clos du Roy”), this cuvé is the most full-bodied and masculine of the three core Sancerres of the domaine. Vinified in stainless steel with a late racking to insure that the wine captures the essence of the terroir, the wine is bottled in September of the year following harvest.
