Domaine Pascal Jolivet - Sancerre La Côte 2014
Terroir: Situated 125 miles south of Paris, the Sancerre landscape undulates at an altitude between 650 and 1,300 feet. The Loire River on the Eastern side of the hilly environment creates a relatively temperate microclimate for the wines. Sourced from a 1 hectare parcel located in the village of Crézancy-en-Sancerre. Soils here are calcareous and limestone.
Vinification: Grapes are hand-picked and fermented in temperature controlled tanks, followed by an extended 12 month aging on the lees.
