Francois Crochet "Le Chene Marchand" Sancerre 2017

92 Our Score
(7/2019) This stunningly well-structured single-vineyard Sancerre binds characteristically crisp acidity and minerality with luscious fruit. White peach, dragon fruit and lime zest are immediately apparent, supported by more subtle undertones of jasmine, basil, cotton and limestone. This Sancerre is packed - as complex as it is limited. A favorite Vin Chicago producer, you'll only find this offering here and it won't last long!

Lucien Crochet "La Chene Marchand" Sancerre 2016

93 Our Score
(7/2019) There are many growers with the name "Crochet" in the Sancerre region of France's Loire Valley. None have the reputation of Lucien, a relatively small Domaine imported by Neal Rosenthal for over 35 years. This bottling, from the famed single "Le Chene Marchand" cru, is like the very best Sancerre bottlings. It delivers citrus fruits, flavors of chalky minerality and a high acid finish, but it does all of these subtly...elegantly. The drinker is greeted with sublime texture and richness and concentration of flavor that nearly masks the intense acidity and layer of citrus, orchard and stone fruit complexity. A delight to drink now, or over the next five years. If opened now, it's recommended to give the wine plenty of oxygen, as the wonderful flavors only lengthen and expand.

Francois Crochet "Le Petit Chemarin" Sancerre 2017

92+ Our Score
(7/2019) This old-vine single vineyard Sancerre, planted in 1976, is the definition of what intense minerality tastes like. Graceful and elegant, it sings of chalky, limestone soils with a backdrop of zippy citrus and orchard fruits. The production here is minuscule and these will disappear fast.

Francois Crochet "Les Amoureuses" Sancerre 2017

92+ Our Score
(7/2019) This stunning single vineyard Sancerre comes from a site that is packed with a mixture of clay and limestone. This unique terroir results in a wine that is both powerful and racy with incredible depth of flavor and complexity. The juice is aged in a combination of both stainless steel tanks and large neutral oak tanks. Look for pure fruit notes of yellow pear, green apple and dried lemon peel with an intense chalky minerality and a pinch of dried herbs. Classic and mouthwateringly delicious!

Domaine Roger & Christophe Moreux "Les Monts Damnes" Sancerre 2015

93 Wine Enthusiast
(10/1/2017) "This is a tropical-fruit-flavored wine with only a hint of more herbal flavors. It is ripe and juicy with sweeping fruitiness as well as acidity. The texture, mineral in character, comes from the chalk of the vineyard-one of the top sites in Sancerre. Drink this beautiful wine from 2018. Editors' Choice."

Domaine Lucien Crochet Sancerre 2015

91 Our Score
(4/2018) Imported by Neal Rosenthal, the taut, bone dry Sauvignon Blancs from Lucien Crochet are definitively Sancerre. This offering, sourced from a handful of top sites, shows ripe citrus fruits, chalk, and smoke-y flint flavors. Though the '15 vintage is ripe, and this wine shows richness, it is classic in its brisk finish.

Alphonse Mellot "La Moussiere" Sancerre 2017

This "extraordinary" hand-harvested, biodynamically farmed Sancerre is sourced from a single site rich in unique Kimmeridgien chalk soils. Exciting at Wine Enthusiast's $36 reference price, but even better at our national low pricing!
93 Wine Enthusiast
(12/12018) "This wine comes from Mellot's home domaine of La Moussière, It is young and intense with ripe fruits and a mix of spice, crisp citrus and concentrated acidity. The depth of flavor in this wine is extraordinary and merits aging. Drink from 2020."

Henri Bourgeois "Les Baronnes" Sancerre 2017

92 Wine Spectator
(10/15/2018) "Lively, with bright lemon curd, gooseberry, thyme and lime pith notes. The bright finish has mouthwatering cut thanks to a light chalky echo. Drink now through 2021."

Domaine Roger Neveu "Cote des Embouffants" Sancerre 2017

91 Our Score
(1/2019) Embouffants is an extremely steep, south-facing, limestone vineyard that the Neveu brothers and their sons sustainably farm. Imported by Kermit Lynch, this attractive Sauvignon Blanc is highly expressive on the nose, giving citrus and tropical fruit notes along with salty white stone minerality. Initially tight on the palate, the wine quickly opens and expands with air. A delicious Sancerre from a small estate that we've admired for years.

Domaine Roger Neveu "Cote des Embouffants" Sancerre 2018

90+ Our Score
(8/2019) Neveu crafts this textbook Sancerre from 20 year old vines on the steep southern-facing slopes of the historical Cote des Embouffants vineyard. Flinty from the start, with waves of citrus and white floral aromas and flavors popping once the wine has a few minutes to breathe. Finishes with plus length and a harmonious energy. It is lovely to get such a pretty and authentic expression of Sancerre from a family estate for such an attractive price.
