Tasting Notes


ABV:
13 %

Notes

Wonderfully crisp, fresh fruits built around impressive structure; rocks, salt a touch of sea-spray and trendy bitterness on the finish, there is lots to admire here. Peach skin, pear and elderflower are just some of the beautiful fruits on display. A blend of 95% Marsanne and 5% Roussanne, fermented and raised in barrel and kept on the fine lees for a year. Just 6-7% new oak.

Domaine Jolivet

Domaine Jolivet

Exciting things are happening in the Northern Rhône. Young, artisan producers with top quality terroir at their disposal are starting to sprout up everywhere. We believe that Bastien Jolivet, our latest discovery, is one of the most thrilling of this talented crop. There are 9ha of prime vineyard, located on the steep, high south-east facing granite slopes of one of the original St Joseph communes, St Jean de Muzols. Bastien’s father always worked the land and produced the crop only to sell it to the local cooperative. After travelling and working within France and abroad, Bastien finally returned home to the family domaine in 2014, his first vintage. Intelligent and passionate about what he does, Bastien is already making startlingly brilliant wines that mix precision and energy with authenticity and character. The winemaking is thoughtful, light-handed and adaptive. A percentage of whole bunches are employed during vinification depending on the plot, vine age and vintage. For young vines grapes are de-stalked. Ageing is for 14-16 months in a mixture of barriques and larger demi-muids, of which rarely more than 10-15% are new. A great domaine of the future.
