The Story

Location:

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 74.25 acres, with vineyards for the Sancerre appellation 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.

 

Soils:

« Les Caillottes » : very chalky soil, situated in Bué-en-Sancerre, makes up 50% of the blend of the Classic Sancerre Blanc.

« Les Terres Blanches » : the highest hill in the west, on argilo-calcareous soils, represents 30% of the blend.

« Silex » : limestone & flint to the East, represents 20% of the blend.

 

Vinification

The philosophy of the estate is to allow nature to take its course, as much as possible. The grape juice is fermented naturally, without adding cultivated yeasts in conjunction with thermoregulation. The wines from each different soil type are fermented separately so to allow the terroir to fully express their differences and similarities.
