New Zealand - Marlborough
Dom. Fines Caillottes Prestige Kiméride 2020
|Label||Terra Vitis / HVE|
What We Say
Clean and lean; this award winning Pouilly Fumé is elegance in a glass. It has a wonderfully expressive nose of lime, peach and floral notes. The elegant mouthfeel has flavours of exotic fruits, hints of spice and a clean minerality.
What They Say
A young expressive wine with floral aromas; roses, hawthorn, fruity notes of citrus fruits, yellow peach and a touch of minerality. Silky and full-bodied in the mouth, fresh and zingy. The palate is harmonious and long and as complex as the nose.
About The Producer Domaine des Fines Caillottes
Today, Domaine des Fines Caillottes is run by the sons and grandsons of Jean Pabiot, Alain and Jérôme. Planted with Sauvignon grapes, the estate spans 42 hectares, divided into 40 plots of varying sizes, and spread across 5 different municipalities within the Pouilly-Fumé appellation. The terroirs, primarily clay-limestone, offer a variety of soil types, including “des Caillottes” (limestone pebbles), marls with small oyster fossils (flat fossilized stones), and flint. This diversity of terroirs imparts complexity to the wines produced by the estate. They practice sustainable development and farming methods and are certified TERRA VITIS - for respecting the environment, people, and wines produced; as well as, “Haute Valeur Environnementale” (H.V.E level 3) for preserving their biodiversity.
