White Wine - France

Luicien Crochet, Sancerre La Croix du Roy

£26.73
Our vineyards cover a surface area of 35 hectares, 26 of which are planted with Sauvignon Blanc grapes for our white wines and 9 hectares with Pinot Noir for our reds and our rosé. Most of the vines are in Bué, though we also have plots in the adjacent communes of Sancerre, Crézancy and Vinon. The wealth of our vineyards is linked to their soils, which overlie calcareous clay rock and an Oxfordian or Kimmeridgian subsoil. Our plots are located on east, south and west-facing slopes at altitudes varying between 240 and 280 metres, which allows us to harvest the grapes when they are at their optimum peak of ripeness.

Domaine Corchet is the largest single holders of vineyard property in the prestigious village of Bué. La Croix du Roy is from a single vineyard where the Sauvignon Blanc vines are an average of 45 years old; it produces a classic Sancerre with inviting citrus and fruit aromas leading to hints of herb, sweet floral notes, and more ripe fruit on the palate.

Tasting Note:
A mineral and terror driven nose with hints of tropical fruits and sea breeze.
