Gilles Crochet, son of Lucien, looks after winemaking duties at this Estate. The winery is ultra modern, fitted out with the very latest temperature controlled fermentation vessels. The emphasis is on creating wines of finesse and complexity that are faithful to terroir and vintage.

The vineyards are located around the towns of Bué, Sancerre and Crézancy, the finest of which is the south-facing limestone-based Chêne Marchand vineyard. Gilles makes his wines as naturally as possible using indigenous yeasts and through hand picking, careful selection of the grapes and long, slow ageing sur lie produces taut, sophisticated and age-worthy Sancerre.

This is a beautiful, benchmark Sancerre, lively and direct with great persistence. Sparkling citrus and peach fruits jostle with wild herbs in this bristling, clear-cut Sauvignon Blanc. Finer notes of flint and powdery, chalky sensations bring this youthful, upfront and delicious Sancerre to a close but its clean, mouth-watering finish leaves you coming back for more.
