Lucien Crochet Sancerre 2012

Lucien Crochet Sancerre 2012

Sku: 057661

The classic Sancerre! Lucien Crochet is making some of the best Sauvignon Blanc in the world. Clean,

 Wine Advocate 90 points (Oct 2014)
The brillant straw yellow colored regular 2012 Sancerre of Lucien Crochet comes from three characteristic terroirs of the appellation: 20% caillottes, 20% griottes, 20% terres blanches and 40% silex. It shows an attractive, though not fully brilliant perfume of minerally accentuated citrus flavors and white fruits. The fresh, citric, medium to full-bodied 100% Sauvignon has a very good fruit concentration, a skinny taste and a powerful and aromatic length.

Wine maker notes
A classic Crochet wine, intense, zesty, pure and linear, refreshing citrus rind character, limes lemons and minerals with a peachy ripeness, remarkably intense and concentrated for a regular Sancerre.

Technical notes
This wine is produced from vineyards in the village of Bue (principally the "Clos du Chene Marchand") that are planted uniquely to clay-limestone soils, known as “caillottes and griottes" which yield a wine of particularly fine quality and exceptional length. Usually harvested earlier than the other cuvées because of the excellent exposure of the vines to the sun, "Le Chene" maintains an elegant acidity in support of the ripe fruit of these well-positioned vines.
