Lucien Crochet Sancerre is pungent and distinctive with mineral and grapefruit flavors; great depth and texture.
"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 things, along with lime and a touch of gooseberry. White pepper and nettle that I imagine pointing toward the wine's flint component combine with the citrus and berry for a strikingly pungent as well as saline, chalky, long-lasting palate impression so that, as Crochet notes, despite high ripeness and just over 13.5% alcohol, it's still "very Sauvignon" as well as "very straight Sancerre." Given that the high ripeness of this vintage does not seem to lend itself to nuance, charm, or (with some exceptions) really luscious tropical fruit character, I'll be happy to settle over the next couple of years for the rectitude displayed here! Range: 88-89"
The Wine Advocate
Domaine Lucien Crochet stems from the fusion of the winegrowing estates of Andre Crochet (Lucien"s father) and Lucien Picard (his father-in-law). The latter was one of the pioneers of bottling in the Sancerre region and one of the first to sell his Sancerre wines in Paris in the early 1950s.
Lucien Crochet expanded the estate over the last thirty years to its current surface area...Read More About Lucien Crochet
