Crisp, complex, elegant: Sancerre is a long-standing classic, and for good reason! Lucien Crochet is among the top sauvignon blanc producers in the world, and this wine is a perfect example of his distinctive style. Grapes come from vineyards in the village of Bue (primarily the Clos du Chêne Marchand) that are planted uniquely to clay-limestone soils, known as “caillottes and griottes" which yield wine of particularly fine quality and exceptional length. Often harvested a bit earlier than other cuvées because of the excellent exposure of the vines to the sun, this maintains an elegant acidity in balance with the ripe fruit from these well-situated vines. The resulting wine is a gem: perfectly poised on a high wire of racy acidity without sacrificing richness. Remarkably intense and concentrated, it remains crisp, clean, and distinctively mineral, with a bright splash of citrus. Zesty and refreshing, with elements of lemon, lime, and minerals evolving into a peachy ripeness that is perfect for any occasion. Sustainably grown, vegan.
