By changing the name of his wine from “Pouilly-Fume” to “Blanc-Fumé” starting with the 2018 vintage, Pascal is taking the wine back to the its roots. “Blanc-Fumé” is the original name of the appellation that was created in 1937 (Blanc-Fumé de Pouilly) and used by his grandfather, Lucien Jolivet. “Blanc-Fumé” translates to “Smoky-White”. Why “smoky”? Because of the greyish hue (color of smoke) that the grapes get coated with upon maturity, as well as the “gun flint” aromas that the wine expresses.
As the neighboring Sancerre appellation is gaining popularity, Pascal is confident that the “Blanc-Fumé” will “captivate wine drinkers who want an alternative to Sancerre.” With many similarities, in quality, grape (Sauvignon Blanc), it only differs in the expression of terroir.

"Very subtle aromas with tropical fruit such as mango and papaya with the lemon and slate undertones on both the nose and palate. Full body. Layered and flavorful. Lots going on here. Delicious and zingy." - James Suckling, 93 points
