Domaine Alain Cailbourdin | Pouilly Fumé, France
Domaine Alain Cailbourdin was created in 1980 by Alain Cailbourdin and today it is comprised of 20 hectares (approximately 40 acres) of vines planted in some of the best Pouilly-Fumé slopes. About half of the vines are "vieilles vignes" or old vines; the other half are vines planted since 1980.
Grapes grown on the different slopes are vinified separately, thus permitting the production of four different cuvees, each representing a distinctive terroir and aromatic expression. Alain has now built a new cuverie and chai which enables him to work totally by gravity and with a lot more room. The 2012 was the first vintage in his new cuverie and already the results are very impressive.
This top Robert Parker Domaine, is rightly a very serious source of Pouilly Fumé.
