The house of Pascal Jolivet was founded in 1987 and is one of the most dynamic domaines in France's Loire Valley. Based in Sancerre, the domaine now owns over 120 acres of prime vineyards spread across the appellations of Sancerre and Pouilly Fume. The domaine supplements the estate holdings with additional fruit sourced from some of the prime terroirs of the region including "Les Caillotes", "Le Chene Marchand" and "Le Clos du Roy" amongst others.
Pascal Jolivet is a firm believer in natural winemaking, and practices environmentally friendly techniques in both the vineyard and the cellar. "I do a kind of biodynamic vinification that takes time, but results in wines you can drink and enjoy without fatigue. My wines have finesse, elegance, and purity, with clean aromas and flavors. There is a paradox in the winery, because I use technology, but only to control the fermentation, not to interfere. I make natural wines that are easy to drink, not 'technical wines' that are heavy and donâ€™t go with food. I have a strong philosophy that our wine is a beverage meant to compliment food. We follow our own logical approach to respect the grapes and make Sauvignon Blanc wines that are lovely, fruity and vibrant." - Pascal Jolivet

Pascal Jolivet Sancerre 2014
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. more
