Crochet Sancerre Blanc 'La Cote' 2015
The village of Bué has the highest elevation and most mineral soil within the appellation of Sancerre. It is home to the estate of Dominique Crochet, an artisan-farmer of the highest level. His family has naturally farmed Sauvignon Blanc in Bué for generations, coaxing the vibrant, green apple/quince flavors so typical to Sancerre from this village. La Cotes is his top wine, made only in the best vintages, that originates in the chalky-clay soil of the Sancerre village of Bué. This is Sauvignon Blanc that goes beyond the varietal description; wildly aromatic, with rich, multi-layered flavors on the palate and a long, lingering finish.
