Daniel Crochet 2013 Sancerre Rouge

Store Location: Boston

Pairs with:Grilled duck breast

Good for: Sipping somewhere with a great view and even better friends

Feels like: Unearthing an unexpected gem from a vintage store

Grape: Pinot Noir

I am from: Sancerre, Loire Valley, France


The story!While Sancerre is definitely more famous for its Sauvignon Blanc, the small village produces a large amount of Pinot Noir. Daniel Crochet is certified organic and produces red, white, and rosé Sancerre which all have that classic minerality.

In your mouth: I'm not your typical Pinot Noir; I'm light in body, but big on flavor. Ripe notes of strawberry and raspberry are complemented by a savory, mushroom flavor.
