Domaine Dominque et Janine Crochet Sancerre Blanc 2019


Janine and Teddy Crochet’s tiny domaine in the heart of Sancerre had just hit its stride in NYC. Near the entirety of their US allocations of Sancerre Blanc 2017 and 2018 were reserved for guests at the Union Square Hospitality Group, Gramercy Tavern, Union Square Café, Manhatta and The Modern.

Limited by lower yields, Crochet’s spring 2020 allotment was similarly thin; a 2019 Sancerre again destined for Danny Meyers’ by-the-glass programs. I know, when I saw them last January, I told them how much I enjoyed their Sancerre, having a $23 glass whenever I dined at Gramercy. Worth every penny, IMO, the experience was always truly world-class.

Sadly, in March, COVID thrashed the restaurant business all over the world. Like Restaurant Nicholas, Gramercy and all the Danny Meyer restaurants are closed. But, friends help each other out and instead of having USHG saddled with inventory they can’t sell, I’m lucky enough to be able to offer their house Sancerre by the glass to all of you.

The price is unheard of for artisanally produced, estate bottled Sancerre… on cases, it’s under $20/btl. That’s no typo. The 2019 is vibrant and so fresh, with aromas and flavors of green apple and quince with a stony finish that speaks to the special limestone that graces the hillsides of Bué.

Food Pairings

It is the quintessential summer-white, this electric white wine is best served cool with any kind of seafood. My favorite? Lobster rolls!
