Winemaker's Notes

Pale and vibrant in color. The 2010 Pascal Jolivet Sancerre is fresh, clean and screaming with racy acidity. On the palate it is fresh and tightly wound; acidity is tempered by very subtle residual sugar; very clean; alive, racy, youthful. Overall, a dry and elegant wine.

    Lime, spices, white flowers, and a hint of chalky terroir.

    (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.
