Sancerre 2010 z Domaine Lucien Crochet je fenomenální a souhlasíme s mnoha hodnotiteli vín, kteří jej staví ještě výš, než vynikající rok 2008. Vína jsou harmonická, šťavnatá – dokonalá kombinace osvěžujícího charakteru a „rodové“ lahodnosti odrůdy Sauvignon Blanc.

Robert Parker:

Sancerre Blanc 2010: Hints of mint and spruce resin pungently accent the fresh grapefruit and lime scents and flavors of Crochet’s generic 2010 Sancerre whose sense of clarity, vivacity, and primary juiciness; of invigoration allied to lushness comes off like a marriage of a more typical 2010 with a top-notch Sancerre from 2011. Piquant nips of citrus rind and a streak of chalk add stimulation to a lingering finish. 90/100

Sancerre Blanc „Le Chéne“ 2010: Caraway, white pepper, green tea, and mint pungently set the nose and palate tingling in Crochet’s 2010 Sancerre Le Chene, with lemon, lime and kumquat offering a juicy but almost severely zesty matrix on an expansive palate that practically glows and vibrates with zesty yet rich intensity. Chalky, salty, and somehow crystalline mineral elements add to a finish of shimmering and shimmying length. This dazzlingly interactive show should have at least a ten year run, perhaps even surpassing Crochet’s wonderful 2008. 93/100
