Pouilly-Fume 2008

France » Loire Valley » Pascal Jolivet » Pouilly-Fume 2008

Summary

Terroir: The Pascal Jolivet Pouilly Fumé comes from 20 acres in 3 separate vineyards owned by Pascal Jolivet in the villages of Tracy, Les Girarmes, and St. Andelain; and additional sourcing from Les Loges. These constitute a large diversity of glacial soils, differing from village to village. Les Loges: very calcareous. Full, firm wines. Saint Andelain: clay-siliceous and siliceous. Provide fruit, bouquet. Tracy sur Loire: sandy and limestone base. Delicacy, aromatics.

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.

Vintage Notes

Pale straw in color. Piquant, minerally, austere, and very clean nose. The palate is open, fresh, and direct, with ripe fruit flavor. Clean biting finish; very youthful; minerally flavors resurface.

Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc: 100%

    This has good zip, with lemon peel, straw and floral notes that ripple through the medium-weight, focused finish -James Molesworth
