Add a little spice to your next candlelit dinner with this precisely crafted Pascal Jolivet Sancerre Rouge. From Pascal Jolivet’s selected vineyards in the Loire valley, the chalky-clay soils produce concentrated fruits unique to their terroir. With their know-how and natural vinification methods, Pascal Jolivet successfully produces a delightful wine in their recognizable style: balanced, fresh and precise.
100% Pinot Noir created with biodynamic vinification methods. Pascal practices biodynamic winemaking, which in viticultural terms, views the farm as a cohesive, interconnected living system. Such practices extend from the vineyard to the careful handling of the fruit post-harvest in the winery. The grapes are sorted by hand and then de-stemmed. Cold maceration for 10 days, followed by natural fermentation that lasts 12–15 days in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks. Vinification begins with light must settling followed by juice fermentation with indigenous yeasts; next, maturation on lees is fundamental for the concentration and the complexity of all Jolivet wines. The process is extremely natural and the slow fermentations nourish and sustainably stabilise the wines using very low levels of sulphur.
