Pascal Jolivet Sancerre Rosé 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Pascal Jolivet is one of the most dynamic and forward thinking producers in the Loire Valley. He started making his Grand Vins du Val de Loire in 1982, later establishing his own Maison Pascal Jolivet in 1987. Specialising in the wines of Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé, Pascal has very quickly gained a formidable reputation and loyal customers amongst leading Michelin starred restaurants in France and around the world. The vineyards of Sancerre are situated 200 km to the South of Paris on hilly countyside between 200 and 400 meters altitude. The Pascal Jolivet Domaine covers 49.50 acres of Sancerre, with vineyards close to the villages of Bué, Verdigny and Ste Gemme. The Loire to the East bank and the surrounding forest create a relatively mild micro climate for the vineyards. The Pascal Jolivet Rosé is a blend of direct press and ‘saignée’ production method rosé wine. The juice is produced from macerated Pinot Noir grapes that have not been sorted by hand or de-stemmed. The philosophy of the estate is to let nature take its course as much as possible. The juice is fermented naturally, without adding cultivated yeasts in conjunction with thermoregulation. This Sancerre rosé develop aromas of red fruits, full of elegance and subtlety. With its soft fruity flavours, it is very pleasant as an aperitif, but also as an accompaniment with pork dishes and poultry.
