Sancerre Rouge “La Bondenotte”
The crop is selected, sorted and destemmed before being placed in vat. After fortnight's maceration, the free-run juices are placed in demi-muids (600 liter / 180 gallon barrels) for eight-months maturation.
We exploit 0.86 hectare (two acres) out of a vineyard that covers 3 hectares (7.4 acres) over the village of Bué. La Bondenotte is sourced from Pinot Noir old vines planted on limestone-clay soils.
La Bondenotte is a profound, subtle and crispy wine with a hint of spices.

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.
