An absolute gem of a wine from what most consider to be the single greatest single vineyard in Sancerre. At an elevation in Bue much higher than most, the natural acidity and concentration is remarkable here and the vibrancy just explodes from the bottle. Take that and combine it with what has been referred to as “vintage of a lifetime” in the Loire in 2019 and one of the world’s greatest white wine makers in Domonique Roger, and you have a recipe for one of the best white bottles produced in France from the 2019 vintage.

A textbook Sancerre Blanc from the village of Bué year in year out, this is the first year that the wine has ever been reviewed and of course they had to give it a big score. Now, our little secret isn’t such a little secret anymore. Drawn off the highest in elevation in Sancerre with the most calcareous soil, it is a chiseled, tightly wound and incredibly complex Sauvignon Blanc, which I’d argue is one of the best in the world and certainly from one of the best and most consistent winemakers in the Loire Valley.
The 2020 Crochet Sancerre Rosé is drawn from the high elevations of Janine and Teddy Chrochet’s Pinot Noir vines in the village of Bue. The conditions are perfect for delicious Sancerre Rose. Salmon-pink in color with a pretty nose featuring aromas of roses and cherry fruits. Slightly more acid this year, the wine as always has terrific fruit, juicy citrus and berries which lead to a racy, high-toned finish that screams for good food.
