This wine is produced from vineyards in the village of Bué (principally the "Clos du Chene Marchand") that are planted uniquely to clay-limestone soils, known as "caillottes and griottes" which yield a wine of particularly fine quality and exceptional length. Usually harvested earlier than the other cuvees because of the excellent exposure of the vines to the sun, "Le Chene" maintains an elegant acidity in support of the ripe fruit of these well-positioned vines.
"Caraway, white pepper, green tea, and mint pungently set the nose and palate tingling in Crochet’s 2010 Sancerre Le Chene, with lemon, lime and kumquat offering a juicy but almost severely zesty matrix on an expansive palate that practically glows and vibrates with zesty yet rich intensity. Chalky, salty, and somehow crystalline mineral elements add to a finish of shimmering and shimmying length. This dazzlingly interactive show should have at least a ten year run, perhaps even surpassing Crochet's wonderful 2008, which is today even more beautifully kaleidoscopic today than when I attempted to wax eloquently about it in issue 190."
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
