Domaine Pabiot

Alain and Jérôme Pabiot , the son and grandson of Jean Pabiot, are 5th generation wine growers at Domaine des Fines Caillottes. Driven by a great love of their vineyards and wines, they do their utmost to ensure that each of their bottles brings as much enjoyment as possible. The Domaine des Fines Caillottes, planted with the Sauvignon Blanc grape variety (known as “Blanc Fumé” in generations past), is cultivated with respect for tradition. They practice supervised vineyard disease protection and yield control. The domaine covers 28 hectares; it is situated on the best terroirs in the Pouilly-Fumé region, on vineyards located near famous villages such as Les Loges, Pouilly-sur-Loire, Soumard and Saint-Laurent-l’Abbaye. The Domaine des Fines Caillottes is made up of 30 parcels, located on varied terroirs, usually of clay-limestone. The "caillottes", from which the Domaine gets its name, are found on the plateaus. Caillottes are a large concentration of white limestone pebbles. The slopes, often south or south-east facing, are predominantly limestone, with fossilized stones (known as marls with small oysters) and composed of ammonites and occasionally with flint.

Tasting Notes

Brilliant light yellow. Expressive nose of grapefruit, apple, pear and floral undertones. Lively attack flowing into a suave, full and fresh palate with crisp aromas. Well-balanced, focused and elegant.

Food Matches

Tuck in to a plate of freshly caught oysters.
