The 2019 vintage has delivered amazing quality juice and the harvest is way ahead of everyone's expectations during the intense heat in mid-summer. Some vignerons are suggesting that the quality of 2019 might even surpass that of 2018.
"Intense nose, tight yet bursting with citrus and hints of white flower. The palate has an extraordinary ripeness almost leading to some spicy, exotic fruit notes and impressive structure. Lovely balance and poise with energy and mineral vivacity. Very good length of flavour."
Crochet is a well-known name in Sancerre, with many branches of the family producing wines under different labels. Jean-Marc and his son Mathieu have been working together since 2007 and we are particularly keen on the precision and finesse they achieve in their wines. Their cellars are in Bué, a charming "Sancerrois" village surrounded by vineyards on hills forming a natural amphitheatre. Their vineyards are mainly on the higher hillsides where there is clay mixed with the limestone which Jean-Marc is convinced brings an extra complexity of spices to the intense mineral character.
The Sauvignon Blanc that is grown here is famous for precision, elegance and intensity. Everything is handpicked and carefully selected, both in the vineyard and again at the winery which is equipped with the latest technology and temperature controlled vats.
