Domaine Pascal Jolivet - Pouilly Fume Indigene 2017
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.
Additional Details editThis powerful and full-bodied wine offers minerality, finesse and elegance. The nose reveals the typical gun-flint scent of the flinty terroir in Pouilly. A great wine.

"This has a subtle hint of toast, along with alluring straw, creamed white peach, gooseberry and honeysuckle notes, all woven together and gliding through the stone tinged finish. Shows good range and focus."

"An impressive, ripe wine, this is packed with baked apple and grapefruit flavors, with a taut, mineral texture. It needs at least a year to round out."
