Pouilly Fumé wines come from an area located on the right (north) bank of the Loire, which offers a large diversity of subsoils from the Ice Age. Pouilly Fumé wines possess characteristic flinty aromas (pierre à fusil), and are slightly rounder and creamier than the Sancerre wines.
The 2019 Pascal Jolivet Pouilly Fumé is a vibrant yellow color with a dry focused nose of citrus and gun-flinty minerality. On the palate the wine is medium in body, incredibly precise and layered with clean, driving acidity.
Food pairing: Its minerality perfectly matches with white meat as well as seafood.
