John Gilman, 93 Points 

"The father and son team of Didier and Jonathan-Didier Pabiot farm their twenty hectares of densely-planted vines biodynamically and are Demeter-certified. They were the first domaine in the appellation to receive the Demeter imprimatur. The grapes are hand-harvested, fermented with native yeasts and aged five months on their fine lees in stainless steel tanks. The cuvée Léon, named for Jonathan-Didier’s son, is made from thirty year-old vines and the 2020 version offers up a deep and refined nose of lime, gooseberry, citrus peel, flinty soil tones, gentle grassiness and a bit of upper register smokiness. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a great core, superb soil signature, bouncy acids and a long, beautifully poised and balanced finish. This is first class Pouilly-Fumé! 2022-2032." 

Wine Advocate, 92 Points 

"The former Florilège comes with a new name this year. Predominantly from limestone soils but also silex, the 2020 Pouilly Fumé Léon offers a clear, deep, fresh and spicy, quite complex and iodine bouquet with great precision and mineral intensity. Aged in stainless steel, concrete and 20% oak barrels (228 and 500 liter), this is a rich and round, very elegant and aromatic Pouilly-Fumé with good mineral and fruity freshness and a long, intense and tensioned finish that reveals fine tannins and crisp grip. This is a substantial wine with excellent aging potential."
