Drinking Tonight - 2014 Pouilly Fumé, Jonathan Didier Pabiot

I tasted the 2013 recently and when I decided to buy even more of it, the vintage had changed to 2014. Lets find out if this equally good.

2014 Pouilly Fumé, Jonathan Didier Pabiot
Not quite. The one year younger version has a very stony, dusty, earthy nose that with air and some vigorous swirling expose notes of grass, matchbox, goose berries and a hint of green peppers. Very young, very green and even a touch anemic.
The taste is young, cool and fresh with notes of crushed rocks, not yet ripe pears, grass and lime peel. A high, pure acidity. A green streak. Medium long and fine. Very fresh and drinking well, but it is more grassy and greener than the 2013.
