In the small commune of Bué, just outside of Sancerre, François Crochet and his wife farm 25 acres of prime vineyards that boast all three of the main Sancerre soil type: chalk, flint, and gravelly marl. Domaine Crochet is a small, family run producer with a respect for the best of traditional methods such as hand picking and selection at harvest. François Crochet, son of Robert and Marie-Solange took over the estate in 1988, after cutting his teeth in the cellar of Bruno Clair. In addition to his range of white wines from Sancerre, François also produces some of the most exciting Pinot Noir in Sancerre; harvested at maturity, his red wines are ripe, exulting with red berries aromas, quite powerful for the area and best consumed with food.
