Domaine Jonathan Didier Pabiot, Loire
Pouilly Fumé, 2015
Grape Varieties: Sauvignon Blanc
Jonathan is the latest in a long line of winemaking Pabiots, and since his first vintage in 2005 has become a real star of the Loire, making some brilliantly pure Pouilly-Fumés. This example comes from a certified organically-farmed portion of his domaine. Pale and refined, this is classic Pouilly-Fumé, with brooding mineral notes intermingling with the citrus fruit core. The palate is pithy and complex, supported by fine acidity and leafy undertones. Perfect with a chicken and fresh goat's cheese salad.
