Domaine Lucien Crochet Sancerre "Cuvee Prestige" Rouge 2015
Result of the merging of 2 emblematic estates from the Loire Valley, Domaine Picard and Domaine Crochet, Domaine Lucien Crochet is now well established in the area.
With over 35 vintages of experience, the estate spreads over 35 hectares. The wealth of the vineyards is linked to their soils, which overlie calcareous clay rock and an Oxfordian or Kimmeridgian subsoil.
The plots are located on east, south and west-facing slopes at altitudes varying between 240 and 280 meters, allowing the harvest of the grapes, when they are at their optimum peak of ripeness. The house style is characterized by wines with great finesse, complexity and perfect balance.
Colour: Brilliant ruby red.
Nose: Slight marks of maturing on oak; First nose of cherries in brandy, followed by notes of blackcurrant and blueberry.
Palate: Starts off elegant with structured tannins, lots of volume.
