Sancerre Exils 2016


Lean - Intense - Flinty - Fresh
The French love a good play on words, a ‘Jeu de mots’, and this is no exception. Exils is an anagram of Silex; Silex is the name given to the soil on which the vines grow, which is flinty over a clay and limestone base. This lends itself well to the mineral, pure gun smoke flavours you can find in great Sancerre and in this wine. The length goes on and on with citrus, pithy fruit and a great expression of the terroir. It is absolutely stonking at the moment!

Francois Crochet
Producer Profile Francois Crochet
Francois grew up on his parents vineyards. In 1998 he fulfilled his dream to become a winegrower and a winemaker and took over the helm. The wines from Francois and his wife Carine are some of the most precise and refined Sancerre we have tried. Their power, accuracy and green herbaceous purity are what sets them above most from this appellation.
