Formally called Prédilection, this cuvée is cropped from a parcel of vines planted on terres blanches, or Kimmeridgian marl. Sited close to the cellar in Les Loges, this beautiful, steep and terraced vineyard was planted by Didier Pabiot, and the vines now average 50 years of age. With an active lime content of over 70%, the very poor soil makes the vines struggle, begetting a saltier, more coiled style than the Aubaine. Again, yields are meagre: 28 hl/ha in this case. 

In the best sense, Luminance is a statement wine, resonating with a level of intensity, slicing freshness and seamless flavour seldom seen in the region. With chalky layers of orchard fruit and ripe citrus, the palate is both mouth-filling and racy; tightly wound fruit is fused with mineral st In the best sense, Luminance is a statement wine, resonating with a level of intensity, slicing freshness and seamless flavour seldom seen in the region.

Reviews

“From Kimmeridgian limestone, the 2020 Pouilly Fumé Luminance (known as "Prédilection" until the 2019 vintage) is excitingly pure and mineral on the saline and complex nose that indicates ripe and concentrated fruit. On the palate, this is a rich and intense, finely tannic, bitter yet stimulatingly fresh and saline Pouilly with a long and powerful finish.”
