Winemaker Notes: 

"What is most interesting about Crochet’s entry-level Sancerre blanc is that it is an assemblage of dozens of small vineyards from every aspect (from north, south, east and west), steep to flat sites, numerous geological formations, including the hard, silica-based sedimentary rock (silex, or chert/flint stone), various limestone formations of soft, powdery chalk (referred to locally as grillot), medium-hard chalky limestone (caillottes), and other limestone marls; the only famous geological formation missing in his range is the kimmeridgian marl, a rock formation similar to what is found in Chablis, known in Sancerre as Terres Blanches. Aside from the mix of tiny parcels too small to have their own cuvée, the majority of the mix comes from each of the vineyards that are bottled as single site wines. Fermented and aged solely in stainless steel, Crochet crafts an energetic, mercurial style of Sancerre with fine lines and pointed complexities."
