The 20 different parcels that go to make up Fines Caillottes add up to 52 acres, a large estate for the region. Alain Pabiot makes an impressively classic Pouilly-Fumé, with the pure fruit of the Sauvignon made more subtle with flavors of herbs and a fine, poised structure. An excellent wine, and one that will certainly age well. Imported by Henry Wine Group.
