Description: Jolivet owns 42 hectares of vineyard in Sancerre at an altitude of 200-400m, close to the villages of Bué, Verdigny and Ste Gemme. Located close to the Loire River and surrounded by forest creates a relatively mild micro climate for the vineyards. The grapes for this wine are organically cultivated and are selected from parcels in Champtin, where soils are predominantly limestone.
Tasting Note: The Sauvage is elegant and subtle on the nose, medium-bodied and rich on the palate, with layers of mouth-watering fruit leading to a racy finish, while retaining absolute finesse.
Serving Temperature: 11°C- 12°C
