2008 Pascal Jolivet Sancerre Les Caillottes

April 11, 2013

2008 Pascal Jolivet Sancerre Les Caillottes – I had purchased a case of this pedigreed sauvignon blanc about two years ago, and the other day we just finished our last bottle.  So sorry to see it go.  My close friend PJ Rex was visiting from Deerfield Ranch Winery in Sonoma, so we did what we so often do when we get together, we get oysters and stone crabs and tuck in for the night.  This is a great pairing.  Along with Champagne and grand cru chablis, the sancerre makes the quintessential partner in this match.  The Jolivet has a medium brightness with plenty of minerality and citrus dominating the nose and palate.  Deliciously complex, but definitely a food wine (not a pool deck sipper), this aristocrat makes perfect use of neutral oak to develop beautiful phenolics and a long lingering crisp finish.  I’ll miss it.  This is Steve R Morse in Fort Lauderdale with another wine review.
