Daniel Crochet Sancerre 2017

Loves working with loops of yarn. “For three years I visited Sancerre, and everywhere I went people had soft, creamy hands, and then I shook Crochet’s sandpaper-textured, muscly hands and I knew I had my producer”. A tiny one at that.

Wonderful scents of sea spray, light citrus character, faint floral notes and a touch of flintiness. More mellow in the palate, a soft spread of lemon barley water and quince flavours with a tang of supple lime juice to follow. Easy drinking says a lot but undermines the small detail here – there’s plenty going on. Lovely.
