The estate’s village level offering ties pungency of fruit and concentration of flavor to the minerality and herbaceous qualities that make its Sancerrois origins unmistakable
I poured a glass of the Lucien Crochet Sancerre 2018 as part of my timed blind tasting practice the other night. Too often when practicing in this format, the harried pace of the analysis (just under 11 minutes on this one), doesn’t allow the opportunity to enjoy well-made, terroir accurate wines such as this. The solution? Have another glass (or two) once the write-ups are complete – and I did just that with this one. A beautiful Sancerre loaded with minerality!
