Pouilly Fumé is a region in France famous for Sauvignon Blanc. Its hallmark is a pierre à fusil character, developing from the silex soils and producing a concentrated, long-lived Sauvignon. Jonathan Pabiot?s Sauvignon Blanc is the prefect melding of two fascinating styles of Pouilly Fumé. Leaning towards Dagueneau (most ambitious producer who died suddenly in 2008) are its open aromas of apricot, mangoes and cassis. Here the pierre à fusil develops more as a ripe fig note, underpinning the wine while revealing its terroir. It is fresh with Pouilly Fumé?s classical backbone.
Could Pabiot be the next Dagueneau? Or could Pouilly Fumé be beginning a new chapter in its greatness? Tradition and passion, youth and excitement ? drinking in Pouilly Fumé has never been better with Jonathan Pabiot?s Sauvignon Blanc.
