Each grape is sorted when gathering the harvest; we work by gravity to respect the natural flow of the juice within vinification process. A light pressing to preserve the quintessential character of the fruit. Terroirs are blended: 50% limestone, 30% flint and 20% limestone clay. Each terroir is vinified separately in thermo-regulated stainless steel tank. Limestone brings minerality and finesse. Limestone-clay enhances fruit and richness. Flint provides structure and minerality. Masculine, fruity, timeless and complex.

In 1926 Jolivet Family-Father Louis, son Lucien- entered the world of wine. This date marks the establishment of the Jolivet and Son wine merchant compagny. Until then Louis and Lucien had succeeded one another as cellar masters of Château de Tracy, which is located in the Pouilly Fumé appelation in France’s Loire Valley. Louis and Lucien used to select the grapes, buy in bulk, and bottle and sell the wines over the Sancerre area. In 1982 Jacques, the son of Lucien, founded his own beverage distributing compagny : Les Grands Vins du Val de Loire.
