Pascal Jolivet Sancerre 2008
from Loire, France
The wine comes from three vineyards: "Les Caillottes", a very chalky soil, situated at Bué en Sancerre, representing 50 % of the blend; "Les Terres Blanches", the highest hill to the west, with a basis soil of argilo-calcaires, representing 30% of the blend; and "Silex", to the east, where the soil is much stoner and rich in silex, representing 20% of the blend.
Pale, whitish straw in color. The nose is very fresh, very clean with notes of lime peel, green herbs, black currant; typical, not aggressive. 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, well balanced. The different origin of soils express fully their differences and their similarities. Slow evolution, very typical Sancerre.
