Terroir: Pascal Jolivet Indigène is assembled from a range of Pouilly terroirs. The wine is powerful and taut, with a pronounced minerality that complements strong flavored cuisine, and develops layered complexity and weight with aeration.
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.
Aged for 12 months on its lees and bottled unfiltered, this is enjoyable now, and will age well. This bottling is the quintessence of Pouilly Fume: very rich, very deep, brooding and age-worthy.
Indigène is specific to its location, grape variety and soils. It expresses the authenticity and purity of a great wine. Mineral and complex, fine and elegant, its power dominates before a fresh and long finish.
