Experience the essence of this Sauvignon Blanc, which grows on the bones of fossil starfish and a once robust limestone, the Calcaire de Tonnerre. These vines have been kept organically since 2009 and biodynamically from 2015, drawing their strength from the plots of Les Papillons, Les Petits Papillons, Les Chantalouettes and Vaurigny, which together form an earthy mosaic on a total plot of 1.68 hectares. The age of the vines that produce this unique wine ranges from 35 to 40 years.
Captures the sun's rays in a delicate straw yellow in the glass.
The Pouilly Fumé Caillottes 2020 opens with a bouquet that invigorates the senses - an image of bright fruit that evokes memories of pear, golden applesauce, peach and stewed quince. It exudes a subtle elegance and seduces with subtle and closed accents. A touch of anise, celery and privet completes a silky, harmonious and refined prelude.
On arrival on the tongue, the wine confirms its silky elegance, refined by an invigorating freshness and a stimulating acidity that increases the drinking flow. A distinct burst of freshness unfolds on the long finish, reminiscent of a cool breeze. It is a wine with a hidden magic, wonderfully Burgundian, perfectly in harmony with this type of cuisine.
The wine develops its full complexity in generous glasses. Good aeration makes this wine a winner.
