Lucien Crochet Sancerre Le Chene Marchand 2014
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 cuvées 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.
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – Coming from the prestigious lieu-dit Chêne Marchand with its shallow calcareous caillottes soils in Bué, the 2012 Sancerre Le Chêne reveals a complex, dense, fresh, and lovely perfumed bouquet of oysters sprayed with lime juice, Amalfi citrons and grapefruit. Le Chêne is a rich, full-bodied yet fresh and animating wine with a profound and persistent minerality and a characteristic taste of wet chalk. It has a lovely salty finish with white fruit and lime aromas.
