Lucien Crochet Sancerre Blanc 'La Croix du Roy' 2010
From grapes harvested from several parcels which include a mix of stones and marne with south-southeast exposure. After a manual harvest, the grapes are pressed and the fermentation proceeds for approximately 30 days. Both remontage and pigeage are done but the degree to which they are practiced depends on the structure of each vintage. Sixty percent of this cuvée is aged in barrel and 40% in stainless steel for one year. The wine is then assembled and, for an additional eight months, is aged in stainless steel before being bottled approximately two years after harvest.
Refreshing citrus flavor went well with our fish in Williamsburg VA
External Reviews for Lucien Crochet Sancerre Blanc 'La Croix du Roy'
Hints of mint and spruce resin pungently accent the fresh grapefruit and lime scents and flavors of Crochet's generic 2010 Sancerre whose sense of clarity, vivacity, and primary juiciness; of invigoration allied to lushness comes off like a marriage ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Loire Valley in France. 2010 Domaine Lucien Crochet Sancerre 750ml
Crisp and fresh, with scents of flowers and a palate redolent with rhubarb and lemon
