Description

Pascal Jolivet Pouilly Fumé Les Terres Blanches 2019


Wonderfully pure with great concentration, this is no average Sauvignon Blanc.

Brilliant pale-yellow straw colour. The wine offers an aromatic bouquet of citrus, white peach, meadow flowers and wet stones. Flavours are layered with hints of honey and buttery brioche for a wonderful richness. Fresh, complex and elegant with a nice minerality and persistent finish.


Pouilly-Fumé is located 200km south of Paris on the east bank of the Loire valley. Sourced from a 6.5 hectare parcel in the vineyard ‘Le Bouchat’, located to the north-east of the appellation. This terroir represents 40% of Pouilly-Fumé's entire vineyard. Composed of 100% clay-limestone, the white soils reflect sunlight back onto the vines, which earned this wine its name: Les Terres Blanches. The grapes are harvested and sorted by hand, then gently pressed. Fermented in stainless steel with natural yeasts at 18°C for 20 days. After fermentation, the wine matures on lees for two months before bottling.
