The Sancerre Rosé by Pascal Jolivet shines with a very bright, almost transparent salmon pink. The grapes come from different areas of the AOC Sancerre, whose calcareous soils express the fragrant grape variety particularly beautifully. Partly pressed immediately or vinified according to the Saignée method, this Sancerre Rosé by Pascal Jolivet delights with a fruity bouquet of ripe strawberries, which are underlaid by a delicate mineral note. On the palate it presents itself dry, straight and fresh with an elegant wild berry fruit and an excellent length.
Vinification of the rosé from the Sancerre AOC by Pascal Jolivet
The Pinot Noir grapes for Pascal Jolivets Sancerre Rosé come from different locations of the Sancerre appellation. Bué, Verdigny and Sainte-Gemme-en- Sancerrois - whose limestone soils highlight the elegant grape variety fruit particularly beautifully. All grapes are carefully picked by hand, selectively, completely destemmed and a part immediately pressed. Jolivet vinifies the other part according to the Saignée method. During a short maceration period (maceration time), the must can extract the first aromas, tannins and colours from the berry peels, which later give the wine its delicate salmon-pink hue. True to his philosophy of minimal interference with the natural development of his wines, Pascal Jolivet also lets the Sancerre Rosé ferment without pure yeasts, i.e. spontaneously in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks.
