DOMAINE LUCIEN CROCHET: TRANSMISSION OF THE SAME PASSION

Domaine Lucien Crochet was born when the farms of André Crochet, his father, and Lucien Picard, his father-in-law, were merged. The latter was one of the pioneers of bottling in Sancerrois, which helped the development of the Domaine Lucien Crochet in Paris and export. Lucien Crochet has operated 38 ha for 30 years and now his son Gilles is at the head of the Domaine with the help of his wife Laurence. After completing his studies in oenology at Dijon and working at Domaine Dujac in Morey-Saint-Denis, Gilles Crochet returned to Sancerre in 1983 to develop the family estate.

DOMAINE CROCHET SANCERRE, A VINEYARD BUILT ON AN EXCEPTIONAL TERROIR

Domaine Lucien Crochet grows 2 different varieties: Sauvignon for white wine and Pinot Noir for red and rosé wines of the Loire Valley. This 35-hectare vineyard, including 26 from Sauvignon and 9 from Pinot Noir, is mainly located in Bué but also in the communes of Sancerre, Vinon and Crézancy. Most of the plots of Lucien Crochet fall on high-quality clay-limestone soils at an altitude of between 240 and 280 metres. This allows for an optimal harvest and a privileged exposure, which can be felt in the wines of Sancerre Crochet.
