About The Wine
Seductive and ripe, this wine highlights all that is great about Sauvignon Blanc, while at the same time reminding us that as a varietal, there is so much more to it than the mass-produced wines which have dominated the scene over the past few decades.
From a low-yielding vineyard which produced fruit of exceptional quality and concentration the wine is fleshy and ripe, with an attractive touch of fume style smoke, balanced out by honeyed fruit, a leafy element and a slight herbal hint.
Set this wine as a reminder anytime you hear a disparaging remark about the variety, truly Sauvignon Blanc as it was meant to be.
About Daniel Crochet
A 4th generation winemaker, Daniel Crochet took over the family estate in 1996, and in the period since has expanded their vineyard holdings while at the same time converting their agricultural practices to organics.
Three important viticultural techniques are employed on the estate: ploughing, ENM (the practice of permitting natural grass to grown among the wines), and cultivation of grass between the rows of vines, with the aim to preserve soil quality and avoid erosion as well as limiting the yields of the vines in order to obtain the maximum concentration in the grapes.
Producing both white and red Sancerre from the estate-grown fruit, Daniel is forging ahead with a clear vision to pass on the estate to the next generations in a sustainable, and forward-thinking way.
