Jonathan Didier Pabiot Pouilly Fumé Elisa 2021


We should start with the Elisa (previously named Prelude), a blend of material from young vines across the 15 hectares of estate vineyards. This is the most overtly fruit driven and high toned, indeed closer to the cliched notion of Sauvignon Blanc. Stainless steel ageing for between 8 to 12 months has gifted a rich and intense wine with the estate’s signature onion spire shape, minerality and spicy textural grip.

Tropical notes of passionfruit, guava and pawpaw, jostle for prominence with blood orange, lychee white flowers, smoke, nectarine and nettles. Silken flow, effortless drinking, until you are forced to sit up – with minerals, texture and clove spice. A magisterial example of the balancing of elements, the depths of flavour illuminated. Waters Wine Co


“The 2021 Pouilly Fumé Élisa offers an intense, beautifully clear, fresh and spring-like vegetal and crisp as well as spicy but substantial bouquet with leafy and green asparagus aromas. Based on four- to 12 year-old vines, this is a pure, fresh and saline but also stunningly rich and intense Pouilly with this gorgeous leafy and phenolic freshness and bite that I haven’t detected in the Sancerrois for some years. The finish is refreshing and structural and very stimulating.” 91 points, Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate
