Jonathan Didier Pabiot Pouilly Fumé Leon 2020

$70.00

Leon is Jonathan Pabiot’s estate wine. Drawn from the region’s three main soil types of silex, caillottes and terres blanches. The vines are planted at 10,000 to the hectare, cropping a miserly 30 hl/ha. Now we enter the world of soil and climate. Aged in a mixture of stainless steel, oak and concrete, the choice of vessels accentuating nuance.

Pungeant florals of spring jasmine and sunflower, with blackcurrant, white peach, quince, rock melon and conifer. Rich, deep, silky and round in the mouth. Almost full bodied, with yellow fruits, cherry, lime, savoury spice, tingling with electric tension that flecks the edges of the palate, rather than cut through. Extremely long, with smouldering minerals, smoke and compost. Waters Wine Co

 

“…offers a clear, deep, fresh and spicy, quite complex and iodine bouquet with great precision and mineral intensity. This is a rich and round, very elegant and aromatic Pouilly-Fumé with good mineral and fruity freshness and a long, intense and tensioned finish that reveals fine tannins and crisp grip. This is a substantial wine with excellent aging potential.” 92 points, Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate
