Pascal Jolivet Clos du Roy Sancerre 2011
This is a single estate wine. The chalky-clay soil and its micro climate give the grapes a distinct characteristic of smoothness and elegance. Look for softness, roundness, generosity and mellow exotic fruit. If you can wait this beauty will only improve with time. This wine can be appreciated alongside rustic salads, shellfish as well as seared, roasted or broiled fish.
Editorial Reviews for Pascal Jolivet Clos du Roy Sancerre
Floral, herbal and complex on the nose with notes of grass and asparagus complementing the pithy citrus fruit that flashes hints of melon and quince. Fairly compact in the mouth with a soft richness easing across the palate and delivering hard citrus and stone fruit flavors. There’s a nice gravelly element on the back end which leads to a modest lemon pith finish. This is beautifully aromatic but a bit of a let down on the palate. Might improve with time in the bottle. 87pts
