Collection: Jean Pabiot-Domaines de Fines Caillottes

Pouilly-Fumé, Loire Valley

 

From this producer comes classic smokey and mineral Pouilly-Fume! Run by Alain Pabiot and his son Jerome, the domaine dates back to 1880. Based in the village of ‘Les Loges’ it covers 29 hectares in Pouilly-Fumé across five communes with 30 separate parcels.

Varying terroirs combine to give complex and nuanced wines displaying the epitome of Pouilly-Fumé characteristics. Sustainable viticulture is practiced. The grapes are hand harvested and quickly taken to the winery. The grapes are destemmed and around 15% spend a short period of time on their skins before pressing. Fermentation begins spontaneously with natural yeasts. All parcels are vinified separately and blended later on prior to bottling. The gross lees are removed three weeks after fermentation while the wine spends at least another four months on its fine lees.
