Pascal Jolivet Pouilly-Fume Indigene 2010
Pascal Jolivet Indigene is assembled from a range of Pouilly terroirs. The wine is powerful and taut, with a pronounced minerality that complements strong flavored cuisine and develops layered complexity and weight with aeration. Aged for 12 months on its lees and bottled unfiltered, this is enjoyable now and will age well. This bottling is the quintessence of Pouilly-Fume: very rich, very deep, brooding, and age worthy.
Domaine Pascal Jolivet was founded in 1987 and is one of the most dynamic domains in the Loire Valley. Based in Sancerre, it has over 70 acres of prime vineyards spread across the appellations of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume. The estate holdings is supplemented with additional fruit sourced from some of the prime terroirs of the region, including Chateau de Nozay, Les Caillotes, Le Chene Marchand, and Le Clos du Roy. Pascal Jolivet is a firm believer in natural winemaking and practices environmentally friendly techniques in both the vineyard and the cellar. He produces classically styled Loire whites, emphasizing elegance, finesse, and balance in all the wines.
