Pouilly-Fumé, Domaine Des Fines Caillottes, Jean Pabiot et Fils 2020
Pouilly-Fumé is an appellation with a similar terroir, next to and often overshadowed by, Sancerre. This is definitely not the case with Jean Pabiots superb Domaine des Fines Caillots which is a Pouilly-Fumé of the highest quality and great value for money. It is a rich sauvignon with beguiling citrus fruit flavours and layers of lovely minerality from a terroir of chalk, stones and fossilised shells.
As good a Pouilly-Fumé as I have drunk for a very long time. The perfect accompaniment to a Dover Sole - or by itself.

How does the wine taste?
With a golden yellow hue, this lovely Pouilly-Fumé has rich lemon flavours with the ‘Caillottes’ terroir giving a terrific silex mineral undertone. A very complete wine, delicious.
