Lucien Crochet Sancerre La Croix du Roy 2018
|Region||France, Loire Valley, Sancerre|
Sourced from several parcels that are planted in rocky, white soils with an east-southeast exposure, this cuvée is the most full-bodied and masculine of the three core Sancerres of the domaine. Vinified in stainless steel with a late racking to insure that the wine captures the essence of the terroir, the wine is bottled in September of the year following harvest.
Aromas of flint, gooseberry, grapefruit and lemon; on the palate, dry with high acidity and lush flavors of passion fruit, gooseberry and grapefruit.
Food pairing : Pork, Shellfish, Vegetarian, Goat cheese
