DOMAINE DU PITON 'LE PITON' SANCERRE & PASCAL JOLIVET 'LES IMPLIPEAUX' SANCERRE

 

LOIRE VALLEY, FRANCE 2019

 

 

The Loire Valley has long been famous for producing world-class white wines. The appellation is home to arguably the best terroir in the world for producing the exceedingly popular Sauvignon Blanc grape, and you'd be hard pressed to find a more enthusiastic or respected producer than Pascal Jolivet. The Loire vintner has helped bring Sancerre to greater recognition in the U.S. market, and his philosophy of working in harmony with nature yields wines of incredible purity, minerality, and precision. Today, we’re proud to offer two of his newest Sancerre projects from the 2019 vintage, ‘Le Piton’ and ‘Les Implipeaux,’ with Mix & Match pricing up to 30% off. These are wines to drink all year long—it’s time to stock up!

 

Sancerre is most famous for its vineyards of Kimmeridgian limestone soils, also a dominant feature in Chablis and portions of Champagne. Grapes grown in Kimmeridgian soil tend to produce age-worthy wines with fruit-and-mineral cores and racy backbones of acidity. Domaine du Piton, recently acquired by Pascal Jolivet and Oddo Vins & Domaines, is one of few estates located in the heart of the medieval village of Sancerre. The estate’s seven hectares of vineyard are planted exclusively to Sauvignon Blanc, and the 2019 vintage offers up a vibrant profile of grapefruit, orange zest, and a hint of saline-like minerality. Racy acidity complements the rich fruit profile and the finish is impressively long. The impeccable balance stands out in ‘Les Implipeaux,’ which seamlessly combines soft floral and white fruit notes with a distinct flinty aroma and savory spice. The wine is slightly richer on the palate compared to ‘Le Piton,’ which steers more toward crisp and delicate. Each of today’s wines possess its own distinct personality, but if you seek complex, elegant, mineral-driven whites, today’s duo from Pascal Jolivet will exceed your expectations. Try both labels for yourself today!
