Bon Viveur 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 fi nesse 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. From one of the great vineyards in Sancerre, the fabulous south-facing Chêne Marchand. The wine is characterised by layer after layer of intense, concentrated fruit, more finesse and class than the regular cuvée, greater complexity, full-flavoured honeydew melon, peach, white flower, citrus rind and mineral flavours with a buttery texture, finishing long true and dry.
