Lucien Crochet Sancerre Rouge la Croix du Roy 2008

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.
