Balance, freshness and precision: the Pascal Jolivet style

When the terroir, know-how and patience reveal and sublimate the complexities of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.
"Talent and taste are not enough, only style counts" P. Cardin

The Loire is a region rich in history and heritage. Our estate is surrounded by the Châteaux of Cheverny and Chambord.

Two grape varieties, three terroirs and exclusively natural vinification. We reveal to you the unique expression of our Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé wines.

Our partnership with this mythical domain of Cape Town in South Africa shows the style of Sauvignon Blanc signed Pascal Jolivet.
