Lucien Crochet Sancerre "Croix du Roy" 2009
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.
External Reviews for Lucien Crochet Sancerre "Croix du Roy"
This is a pure, unoaked Sauvignon Blanc from the region of Sancerre. Incredibly fresh, full of minerals and smoky subtle fruits. Excellent with seafood.
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
