Tasting Notes

This richer, creamier style of Sauvignon Blanc offers dense, ripe yellow apple, pear and nectarine flavors.  The low yields show in its flavor saturation, yet it remains juicy and crisp with minerality and touches of lemon lingering through the finish.

 

From the Distributor: 

The Pabiot vineyards are among the most lush, lively and vibrant one will ever see. They are one of only three organic growers out of 120 domaines in Pouilly-Fumé. While many of their friends and neighbors are plagued by disease in their vineyards, Pabiot's vines remain healthy and equipped to resist the many threats present in such an inhospitable growing climate. Never to rest on their laurels, in 2016 Pabiot became the first certified Biodynamic (Demeter) domaine in Pouilly-Fumé. They firmly believe the influence of their BD preparations are further strengthening the vines and the overall health of their diverse and dynamic terroirs

The vines average 30 years of age, and are planted very densely at 10,000 vines per hectare! Outside of Burgundy and a few select locations, this density is quite rare in the wine world. Jonathan works the soils to encourage deep rooting. He passes with his tractor three to five times annually and then allows grass to grow between rows at the end of summer as harvest approaches. He de-buds in the springtime — a technique of removing certain buds to increase quality and concentration in the remaining ones — though he does not do a green harvest. Upon harvesting by hand, the vines yield an average of 30 hectoliters per hectare.
