Recognized by the RFV Guide, Daniel Crochet is now one of the leading figures in Sancerre. And for good reason: talented and well-rounded, he benefits from the finest plots in the Bué area and dedicates tremendous effort both in the vineyard and in the cellar. He excels equally well with his Pinot Noir as with his Sauvignon cuvées.

Each one is a perfect model of its terroir's expression, and the progress in recent vintages is impressive, with a conversion of the vineyard to organic practices.
