(From 2014 Vintage) Pascal Jolivet Sancerre Blanc is sourced from three vineyards in the heart of the appellation. The ”Les Caillottes” vineyard and it’s chalky soils makes up 50% of the blend, followed by the hillside vineyard of ”Les Terres Blanches” at 30% and the limestone and flint riddled vineyard of ”Silex” making up the remaining 20%.
Citrus, grapefruit, gooseberry - citrus aromas, light on the palate, pale straw, not too acid, light, little depth, but very fresh 9/10 rating - drink now, must drink young Central France, Loire NZ fresher, zestier, more feisty
Decent, if boring and a bit acidic. some minerality, tangy aftertaste.
Planet Grape(From 2013 Vintage) This benchmark Sancerre is zippy and tart with notes of gooseberry, lime zest, spring pea, spring asparagus, raw bell pepper, yellow pear, Margarita mix, and it has a chalky salinity. It is light bodied, crisp and fresh, an ideal aperitif wine.
