France – Domaine Vincent Caillé
In the heart of the appellation Muscadet Sevre et Maine, at le Fay d’Homme near Monnières, the Caillé family have been winegrowers for 5 generations. Vincent Caillé, who took over the family vineyard in 1986, is part of a new generation of winegrowers who decided to pursue a policy of uncompromising quality. With the stubbornness of passion, he produces Muscadet Sevre et Maine of high expression. On different type of soils (gneiss, gabbro and orthogneiss), he works the land with tillage or natural grass. Grown “organically” since 1996, the vines blossom on living soils that have recovered their wild tulips, a protected species affected for a long time by chemical treatments in the region. Vincent Caillé is one of the few winegrowers from Nantes who produce “organic” Muscadet, a true priesthood due to the oceanic climate and the propensity of Melon to welcome mildew.
These are wines that repay cellaring as well as being approachable in their youth. If you appreciate the Southern Rhone, you will see the beauty of these wines
