Pascal Jolivet Sancerre 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

Pascal Jolivet is a highly regarded producer in this lovely region of the Loire Valley. The soil and climate of Sancerre are ideal for producing crisp, vibrant Sauvignon Blanc with a strong presence of minerality and racy acidity. Jolivet Sancerre has a beautiful, expressive nose that displays vibrant, clean fruit aromas along with nice minerality, while the palate has elegant stone fruit and cirtrus notes backed by mouth-watering acidity. Fish dishes, shellfish and goats' cheeses will prove to be a compelling match.

Terroir: Pascal Jolivet Sancerre Blanc is sourced from three vineyards in the heart of the appellation. The "Les Caillottes" vineyard and it's chalky soils makes up 50% of the blend, followed by the hillside vineyard of "Les Terres Blanches" at 30% and the limestone and flint riddled vineyard of "Silex" making up the remaining 20%. Vinification: Pascal Jolivet practices a minimalist winemaking style, allowing nature to take it's course. Each of his white wines is produced using exclusively native yeasts, and entirely in temperature stainless steel. All parcels are vinified separately until final blending and bottling. Additional Information: Pale and vibrant in color. The 2014 Pascal Jolivet Sancerre is fresh, clean and screaming with racy acidity. On the palate it is fresh and tightly wound; acidity is tempered by very subtle residual sugar; very clean; alive, racy, youthful. Overall, a dry and elegant wine.
