One of Loire's youngest producers, Jonathan Didier Pabiot’s wines are organically certified and he employs many biodynamic principles in an effort to ensure that his wine gives a true representation of the magical terroirs of Pouilly-Fumé. Consistently voted among the best winemakers in France, he is being touted as the successor to French winemaking superstar Didier Dagueneau – high praise indeed!
Sold as Prélude until the 2020 vintage, the Pouilly Fumé Élisa offers freshness, brightness, minerality, and is energetic and well balanced. It is based on four- to 12-year-old vines which are organic certified. The palate offers flavors of grapefruit, mineral, light smoke, apricot, and pear. The finish is refreshing and structural. Will good nicely with grilled shrimp or mussels with a mignonette.
