Crochet Sancerre 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Harvest is done manually. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are crushed in a pneumatic press; juice is racked off the heavy lees 18 to 24 hours after crushing; fermentation proceeds under controlled conditions at low temperatures. The wines remain on the lees in stainless steel until March of the following year. The wines are lightly fined and filtered and bottled just prior to the next year's harvest. Malolactic fermentation never occurs.

This is a pure, unoaked Sauvignon Blanc from the region of Sancerre. Incredibly fresh, full of minerals and smoky subtle fruits. Excellent with seafood.

The basic Crochet 2008 Sancerre smells hauntingly of white truffle, musky daffodil and peony; and pungent sage and citrus rinds. A Chablis-like sense of herbed, salted chicken stock and chalk underlies an otherwise bright, sassy, pungently inflected ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Loire Valley in France. 2008 Domaine Lucien Crochet Sancerre 750ml
