Pascal Jolivet

Pascal Jolivet

Domain Pascal Jolivet was founded in 1987 and is one of the fastest growing in the Loire Valley in France. Located in Sancerre, the winery has about 50ha of first-class vineyards - both in Sancerre and in Pouilly-Fumé. Interestingly, Pascal Jolivet actually has a family tradition of wine and viticulture - his grandfather Lucien Jolivet was a local producer who used the name Blanc-Fumé on his bottle labels more than 60 years ago. In direct translation, the name means "smoky white", which resonates with the smoky gray hue of the grapes when ripe, as well as the aromas of gunpowder typical of the wine of this terroir. This non-standard tradition in labelling today the grandson is returning again and from 2018 Pascal's wines from the Pouilly-Fumé appellation are called Blanc-Fumé. Pascal Jolivet firmly believes in nature and its power and practices gentle ecological techniques, both in the vineyard and in the cellar. The philosophy of the domain is to allow nature to take its own path and only support it when needed. Fermentation is carried out with wild yeast in stainless steel tanks with thermoregulation.

Loire Valley

Loire Valley

This is a long and diverse region in western France, adjacent to the Loire River, which produces interesting wines - from charming and fruity to rich and long-lasting. A representative of the red varieties here is Cabernet Franc and the wines from Bougainville and Chinon are excellent, but in fact the white varieties are the specifics of the Loire. The most common are Chenin Blanc (Vouvray), Melon de Bourgogne (Muscadet) and Sauvignon Blanc (Sancerre, Pouilly Fumé). Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé have come out of the shadows of their region and can be said to be well known around the world - the former with the typical mineral-herbal character of the wines, and the latter with the greater complexity of the body and aroma due to contact with oak, although the variety is the same - Sauvignon Blanc.

Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most famous white grape varieties, successfully found its way out of the home country France into a second one - New Zealand. The rapid development of the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most dramatic events in the world of wine. The intense and readily accessible flavour of a classic Marlborough is the main reason behind this success - fruity, intense, almost magical.The key selling point of Sauvignon Blanc is its straightforwardness – the flavours are rarely hidden away in the background, which makes Sauvignon Blanc an ideal wine with which to begin a journey in the world of wine. Classic Sauvignon Blanc aromas range from grass, nettles and asparagus to green apples and to more esoteric notes such as cats' pee, boxwood and gunflint.
