Vincent Caillé – Domaine Fay d’Homme

Vincent has the brightness of eye and jaunty sweater we like in our winemakers. His passion is uncontained and the wines he produces show this, and indeed the level of complexity that the Gneiss and Gabro soils of the region can produce. He uses lees ageing, large vessels, extended ageing in tank and barrel, and of course he is organic; moving to biodynamic. He is located in Monnieres in the heart of Sèvre et Maine and has a vast array of vineyard locations

covering 26 hectares. He has amassed some of the finest vineyards in the region, by careful buying and selling. He now reckons he has the perfect combination of vines. We have introduced Opus 7 into the range, a barrique aged wine from old vines located on Gneiss soil and aged sur lee for 12 months. This is wine that continues the chablisesque theme in
that it is intense, concentrated and very mineral, with the addition of honeyed notes and complex nutty characters.
