Interview of Ms.Chollet Milène – Export Assistant – PASCAL JOLIVET for AsiaImportNews – Exclusive
Could you please tell us the story of your winery, when it was created and how it developed decades after decades ?
In 1987 Pascal as a wine maker and merchant creates the “Pascal Jolivet” brand. To facilitate this development and produce his own range of wines, Pascal builds a brand new winery in 1990. In 1993 Jolivet and Pascual acquire from their cousins a beautiful vineyard of 6 hectares and so DOMAINE PASCAL JOLIVET was born.
Pascal Jolivet is one of the youngest and dynamic wine estate in Loire Valley.
What sort of wines are you producing ?
We are producer in Sancerre Blanc (we have 42 hectares ) , Pouilly Fumé (8 hectares) and Sauvignon Blanc de loire (50 hectares in Chemery, Touraine)
How important are your export distribution compared to national distribution ?
We export in 91 countries. About percentage, we are 80 % export and 20 % national.
What sort of distributors are your customers ?
Our customers are mainly high quality restaurants, luxury resorts, wine shops, airlines. We do not have a quantitative strategy but qualitative one.
Why your wines are different from other wineries in your area ?
From the beginning, 30 years ago, we decided to express the terroir of Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé in working with natural yeasts. The expression of Sauvignon Blanc is so different between each terroir: flint, chalk, and clay that it is very important to separate the winemaking.
Do you produce grapes in a organic or environmental friendly method, or with general methods ?
For the last 30 years, we worked in a sustainable viticulture. Since vintage 2016, we have reconverted all our vineyard in organic viticulture. By this way, the expression of each terroir is more precise.
Are your wines already distributed in Asia, and if not what are the countries you are looking for new distributors ?
Yes, we distribute in Asia. Our first market is Japan. Then, we also distribute in China, in South Korea, in Singapore, in Philippines, in Thailand, in Malaysia, in Vietnam, in Indonesia, in Taiwan, in Azerbaijan, in Cambodia, in Myanmar, in India, in Kazakhstan.
