Terroir: The Pascal Jolivet Pouilly Fumé Les Griottes comes from a 3.7 acre parcel in one of the top terroirs in the appellation first planted in the 11th century. The hillside vineyard has an ideal south/southeast exposure and soils predominantly of limestone.
Vinification: Pascal Jolivet practices a minimalist winemaking style, allowing nature to take it's course. Each of his white wines is produced using exclusively native yeasts, and entirely in temperature stainless steel. All parcels are vinified separately until final blending and bottling.

Ripe, with a core of gooseberry and mirabelle plum notes, carried by a flinty spine through a focused, smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2018.
