Made with the same attention to detail as Jolivet’s great Sancerres, this wine is made from grapes grown outside the appellation. The wine offers expressive floral and fruit aromas, freshness and minerality in the mouth. This is textbook Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire.
Attitude Sauvignon Blanc is produced from an estate owned single vineyard within the appellation of Chevery located to the west of Sancerre. The philosophy of the estate is to let nature take its course as much as possible. The juices are fermented with wild yeasts in stainless steel tanks with thermoregulation.
“Attitude” has a beautiful freshness in mouth, a frank attack, delicate green and lemon flavours, citrus fruits, green apple and kiwi aromas. The minerality gives a long finish to the wine, a smoothness and elegance – characteristics of all of Pascal Jolivet’s wines.
Very pleasant with or without food, in particular with seafood, asparagus, roasted fish and goat’s milk cheese. “Attitude” is the epitome of Pascal Jolivet’s style of wines. It has international appeal and characterises the evolution of a new generation of Sauvignon Blanc consumers.

Has the plump edge of the vintage, with wet straw, lemon curd and gooseberry gele notes. Light flint echo on the finish. Drink now.
