Tasting Notes

Sancerre Les Clacaires is a 100% Sauvignon Blanc wine a precise expression of white fruit like peach, and hints of floral notes in the background. Elegant attack, followed by aromas of white flowers, white fruits, with a long mineral finish.

France

Loire Valley

Loire Valley stretches from Atlantic coast near Nantes to the inland Auvergne in the middle of the country. This wine region in western France plays a major role in terms of both quantity and quality of the national total output. The production is predominately driven by white wines using Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, and Melon de Bourgogne.

Domaine Lucien Crochet

Moderate maritime climate

Domaine Lucien Crochet

The large variety of soils in the Loire Valley is characterised by diverse natural environments. This region can be sub-divided in four climates, from western coastal regions to inlands - Pays Nantais / Anjou-Saumur / Touraine / Central Vineyards. The Eastern end of the Loire is geographically a vast chalk bed made of fossilized sea shells giving Central Vineyards' soils their characteristics: a continuation of the Kimmeridgian clay that extends towards Chablis, with some limestone or flint.
