Sancerre Plante des Prés 2016

The bouquet is a lovely, delicate prelude to the round notes on the palate. This Sancerre is richly aromatic while having the unique characteristic of being light as a feather without lacking character and depth. Food Pairings: Cold entrees containing vegetables, terrines, and fresh goat cheese; also pairs well with salty plates either raw or cooked, seafood and shellfish such as mussels, shrimp, whelk, and lobster (served either cold or hot), Asian dishes(sushi, sashimi), white meat, and fresh but fine flavored cheeses.
This domaine is in its fourth generation; Daniel Crochet took over the family business in 1996 after studying viticulture and oenology at the Lycée Wine Avize in the Marne. Since 1996, operations were expanded to reach today an area of 9.15 hectares and 5.92 Sauvignon Blanc hectares and 3.23 hectares of Sauvignon Pinot Noir. The plots are located in the towns of Sancerre and Bué, all AOC Sancerre. The soils consist of two main types of soil: terres blanches- clay-limestone composition and caillottes- pebbly limestone. Three important viticultural techniques are employed on the estate: ploughing, ENM (the practice of permitting natural grass to grown among the wines), and cultivation of grass between the rows of vines. This alone represents 70% of the property with the aim to preserve soil quality and avoid erosion as well as limiting the yields of the vines in order to obtain the maximum concentration in the grapes. In addition, a conscientious and environmentally responsible program of pest and disease control is practiced throughout the estate.
