Details

The story behind this producer begins at the beginning of the 1900's when Louis Pabiot, a winemaker at Les Loges, cultivated about 120 acres. This may seem a very small surface but needless to say all the work was performed manually, and in any event Louis Pabiot couldn't even afford a horse!

Fast forward to today and Domaine des Fine Caillottes is comprised of 28 hectares (70 acres) of vines, planted with Sauvignon Blanc (called "Blanc Fumé" locally)

30 plots constitute the estate, located in different villages including Pouilly sur Loire (Pouilly, Tracy-sur-Loire, Saint-Andelain, Saint-Laurent-L'Abbaye and Villiers). The terroirs are also quite varied: limestone-clay predominate, kimmerridgian marl, siliceous-clay marl, and flint. The average age of the vines is approximately 20 years old. The oldest are more than 40 years old.

After partial skin maceration (depending on the vintage), fermentation in thermoregulated stainless steel tanks takes place (16 - 20°C) with wild yeast naturally found on the grapes. The maturing on fine lees and the stirring of lees last several months. The blending is done before bottling.
