2020 Lucien Crochet Sancerre, Loire Valley, France (750 ml)
About the Icons
Lucien Crochet is one of a handful of producers we turn to - when available! - for racy, classic Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc.
Producer notes ~ "The grapes for this basic cuvée of Sancerre are sourced from the vineyards in Bué, Vinon and Crézancy. After harvest, fermentation is done in stainless steel cuves at temperatures between 14 and 18 degrees Celsius. As with all the whites at the domaine, this wine sits in contact with the fine lies for a considerable period of time with the racking being done late in the spring following harvest. The first bottling occurs no earlier than July and frequently does not occur until September of the year following harvest."
