About The Wine
Inside the bottle: Sauvignon Blanc is the white grape in Sancerre, and there is no mistaking it at Chez Crochet. For such a forceful and “minerally” white wine, it shows a tremendous amount of beauty and delicacy. There are aromas of kefir lime, lemon, lemon peel, ripe green melon, cucumber, freshly crushed limestone rocks and gunflint. Straight away, the palate of the wine hits you with purity and the electricity of perfectly picked grapes. The wine will feel like it is exfoliating your mouth! So fresh and clean!
Terroir: This wine is made from a number of different parcels scattered across the appellation. The topsoils range from limestone marls, kimmeridgian stones and hard limestones mixed in to varying soils of clay, thin gravels and heavy sands scattered near the village of Bué. Also, there is a little dose coming from silex soils as well. The climate in this area is one of the cooler areas but most of the sites face towards the south, which helps the grapes find their ripeness.
