The young and dynamic François Crochet has made wines in New Zealand and Bordeaux, and now uses his broad experience wisely. To make Sancerre that measures with the best of the appellation, Francois pays a great deal of attention to the quality of his grapes. At harvest he handpicks and this results in expressive wines with the distinctively pungent, flinty characters that the terroir delivers. Made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown on the limestone slopes of Bué, this is a classic with a lovely grassy aroma and well balanced ripe flavours. Whilst exhuberant to start, with citrus flavours, there is excellent balance and full sweet fruit on the finish.
