Sancerre – Pouilly Fumé
The style of our Signature Range is the result of a meticulous work based on gravity, from collecting grapes at harvest to vinification to bottling. The combination of the various terroirs: limestone, clay and flint. 100 % indigenous yeasts and slow fermentations confer unique finesse and minerality with an extremely well-integrated acidity.
Each terroir contains its own identity for this pair of distinctive wines. With each wine, our “biodynamic” winemaking” process will bring out their respective qualities and style. These two wines express respectively: the limestone properties in Sancerre and limestone-clay properties in Pouilly Fumé.
Domaine Pascal Jolivet has been built up over years, acquiring plots among the best terroirs of Sancerre.
The grapes growing on these plots are harvested by hand. They produce a highly concentrated juice, accompanied by natural and indigenous yeasts, wich trigger fermentation. The maturation on fine lees lasts around six months. The outstanding characteristics of each of these plots strengthen the unique style of the Domaine’s wines.
Each vine stock is nourished by each terroir’s particularity, and then it is the matter of the winemaker to accomplish his own craft and know-how. These two wines are the result of a philosophy, an ethic and overall, the expression of two great terroirs.
Balance, freshness and precision: the Pascal Jolivet style
When the terroir, the know-how and the patience reveal and sublimate the complexities of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.
