"Tangy, with a mix of thyme and lime pith leading the way, backed by gooseberry and flint notes through the finish. Drink now."

Product Description:

"Terroir: Pascal Jolivet Sancerre Blanc is sourced from three vineyards in the heart of the appellation. The "Les Caillottes" vineyard and it's chalky soils makes up 50% of the blend, followed by the hillside vineyard of "Les Terres Blanches" at 30% and the limestone and flint riddled vineyard of "Silex" making up the remaining 20%.

"Vinification: Pascal Jolivet practices a minimalist winemaking style, allowing nature to take it's course. Each of his white wines is produced using exclusively native yeasts, and entirely in temperature stainless steel. All parcels are vinified separately until final blending and bottling." - Importer
