Lucien Crochet Sancerre is pungent and distinctive with mineral and grapefruit flavors; great depth and texture.
Hints of mint and spruce resin pungently accent the fresh grapefruit and lime scents and flavors of Crochet’s generic 2010 Sancerre whose sense of clarity, vivacity, and primary juiciness; of invigoration allied to lushness comes off like a marriage of a more typical 2010 with a top-notch Sancerre from 2011. Piquant nips of citrus rind and a streak of chalk add stimulation to a lingering finish. I suspect that this could not have been so successful had it not benefited from the long lees contact and relatively late bottling that Crochet practices even with this his simplest cuvee. Look for at least 3-4 years of pleasure.
