Tasting notes: «An oxidative touch on the nose, then spicy aromas, candied quince, then in the mouth we find a beautiful power with a very saline, almost iodized finish. Utopia is the colour of reggae because during my fermentation, my cellar is spellbound with music and I had to make it understood on the label!» - Jonathan Pabiot
Story:This cuvée comes from a plot of old vines planted on Kimmeridgian marls because like the old French proverb goes, the best jams are made in old jars. The wines are aged in the oldest barrels between 10 to 15 years old. This wine was vinified naturally, in order to have a better understanding of his wines. Understand when they are sensitive, and when he had to be careful. In 2017, he named this bottle of natural wine, Utopia.
The appellation Pouilly-Fume is mainly known for white wines that are floral and fruity. There, the terroir is an association of a semi-continental climate with millions of years old soil. The ground is made up of Kimmeridgian marls, hard limestone and flint giving a mineral, fine and bright aspect to the wine. The soil in the vineyard are plowed mainly in winter and in early spring to respect the structure of the soil while the plant is growing. Their plots have the particularity of being planted mainly on hillsides, steep slopes, or even terraces. The vines are planted on different types of soil, mainly limestone, limestone rocks and shell limestone (kimmeridgian marl). These exceptional terroirs are the base of the minerality in their wines. Being close of the Loire, their wines grow in a special micro-climate which is unique to our area. All the vineyards have been cultivated organic since 2006 and biodynamic since 2016. They work with great attention to details and with much care on every step of the vinification of the wines. They always adapt the way of working to respect the plant and it’s natural cycle. Only a healthy plant can produce well balanced wine.
