Buy at LCBO

Winemaker in Verdigny, in the heart of the Sancerre appellation since 1926.

The ‘Caillottes’ soil is made of small limestone pebbles mixed with clay and dating from the Kimmeridgian era (Oxfordian Jurassic). The white pebble stones now cover most of the vineyard ground, hastening the grapes maturity through the reflection of the sunlight into the vines . This Terroir is known for its aromatic intensity and airy wines.

Decanter - 91 Points

With its pale colour and subtle nose the Caillottes is a delicate wine. A typical expression of the Sancerre style this cuvee is refreshing, unctuous and lifted by citrus aromas. The palate lingers on a mineral and aromatic finish. 91 Points Decanter

This is an ‘early-ripening’ soil thanks to the sunrays reflected from the white pebbles on the ground into the vines. The grapes are delicately pressed in a pneumatic press. Prior to the fermentation, the terroir expression is maximized by an extended contact between the clear juice and the fine lees. A cold temperature fermentation ensures a slow fermentation that reveals the complexity. The aging on fine lees for 8 months refines the style and magnifies the balance.
