Lucien Crochet Sancerre "Croix du Roy" 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes were hand-picked and sorted a first time in the vineyard before being brought to the winery in 40 kg crates. They were then table-sorted before being completely destemmed. A belt was used to transfer the grapes into the tanks. Daily punching of the cap and pumping over of the must. Fermentation lasted 28 days. A belt was used for devatting. The grapes were gently pressed using a pneumatic press. Ageing: 50% in barrels and 50% in stainless steel tanks.

Outstanding, textbook Sancerre. Lucien Crochet is renowned for his excellent Loire wines, and "La Croix Du Roy" is one of them. With bright citrus fruit with delightful earthy and herbal tones, this is exactly what a great Sancerre should be.

Crochet's basic 2009 Sancerre - incorporating the fruit of younger vines and less-ripe but geologically diverse sites, and still in tank when I tasted it - is indistinctly but attractively scented with a greenhouse-like amalgam of leafy and flowering... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Loire Valley in France. 2009 Domaine Lucien Crochet Sancerre 750ml

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