Sancerre Rouge 2013

Posted on Posted in Articles, Domaine Lucien Crochet, Occasional Thoughts

Sitting at The Corner in the Hotel Tivoli drinking the 2013 Sancerre Rouge “Croix du Roy” from Lucien and Gilles Crochet. Married specifically to a plate of potato gnocchi with fava beans but went equally well with the green pea risotto served simultaneously. The essential red fruit of the wine was subtle and charming; the tannins captured the true meaning of the French term “soyeux” meaning texturally silky. An unpretentious but utterly satisfying Pinot of breed and grace. How nice to have a wine so comfortable in its own un-manipulated skin.
