Description

Pascal Jolivet Pouilly Fumé 2022

Dazzle your family or friends with this fruity and mineral beauty. She's full of character, timeless and complex. Does that sound familiar?

Vibrant pale yellow colour. Ripe grapefruit and lemon citrus aromas with plenty of flint and a little pear. On the palate, green apple twist, white peach and pineapple crush wrapped in wet stone minerals. The soft mouthfeel is well-structured and clean. Concentrated and powerful, with a fresh acidity and medium finish

Pouilly-Fumé is situated 200km south of Paris, on the east bank of the Loire valley. Pascal Jolivet owns a total of 8 hectares in the villages of Les Loges, St Andelain and Tracy. The soils in Les Loges (50% of blend) are chalky-limestone, giving the resultant wine length and body, while in flint and clay dominate St Andelain (30% of blend) and Tracy (20% of blend).

Each terroir is vinified separately. The grapes are manually harvested and sorted, then gently pressed. Fermentation with natural yeasts in large stainless steel tanks at 16°C for 33 days. Aged in stainless steel for two months before blending and bottling.
