Description

Pascal Jolivet Sancerre Le Grand Chemarin 2017


With its beautiful balance between generous fruit flavours and great minerality, this wine is the perfect treat to revitalise you after a long day (or as a no-reason-just-because treat).






Pale gold. A fruit bomb of ripe grapefruit, melon, apricot and abound with crisp citrus. Complementary notes of almonds, herbs and honey create a layered complexity. Rich, round and explosive. This exceptional wine ends in a beautiful, persistent mineral finish.

 







Le Grand Chemarin is a south facing hillside vineyard situated over the village of Bué. Pascal Jolivet bought a 1.4 hectare plot in 1993 and was the domaine's very first land acquisition. The dominantly limestone soils produce uniquely complex and concentrated fruit from the oldest vines within the domaine's holding. The grapes are hand-picked and fermented with natural yeasts. Maturation on fine lees for 12 months in large thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks.

 From the oldest vines in the Jolivet holdings in this vineyard, this wine is rich with melon and apricot, and crisp with citrus. Combined, the two elements have created an intense wine that hints at a herbal character but is richer, honeyed and wonderfully ripe. Drink now.
