Sancerre is situated 200km south of Paris at an altitude of between 200-400m. Jolivet own 42 hectares of vineyard in Sancerre, close to the villages of Bué, Verdigny and Ste Gemme. Located close to the Loire River and surrounded by forest creates a relatively mild microclimate for the vineyards. 50% of the grapes come from ‘Les Caillottes’ vineyard grown on chalky soil, in Bué-en-Sancerre, 30% from ‘Les Terres Blanches’, the highest hill in the west on calcareous-clay soils, and 20% from the east limestone and flint soils. The vines are trained using the vertical shoot positioning system. The grapes are pressed very gently in order to optimally preserve the fruitiness. The grapes are vinified according to terroir in temperature-regulated stainless steel tanks and only then is the cuvée formed from them. The fermentation takes place spontaneously (without pure yeast) in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine spends a further two months maturing in stainless steel before bottling. Bottled at 13.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)
