Janine and Teddy Crochet’s tiny domaine in the heart of Sancerre had just hit its stride in NYC. Near the entirety of their US allocations of Sancerre Blanc 2017 and 2018 were reserved for guests at the Union Square Hospitality Group, Gramercy Tavern, Union Square Café, Manhatta and The Modern.
That all came to a halt last year – and we were more than happy to help the Crochet family place their inimitable Sauvignon Blanc into deserving homes. The situation is better now but not by much. And we’ve worked out some very special pricing for the Nicholas Faithful today – for the price of a glass at Gramercy Tavern, you can pretty much have the whole bottle.
The price is unheard of for artisanally produced, estate bottled Sancerre. Super intense aromatics with crisp stone fruits, Asian pear and that signature Bue minerality streak. Vibrant fruit and acidity with tremendous balance and depth. It’s a Sancerre that is only going to get better over the next couple of years.
