The Crochets have thirty-one hectares of vineyards spread across four communes in the Sancerre appellation, including the largest single holding of vineyard property in Bué. The soil composition in this area yields wines that are highly aromatic with excellent balance, as well as rustic than those from elsewhere in the appellation. Hand harvesting – a rarity in Sancerre – and the use of indigenous yeasts give particularly nuanced, elegant wines.
