THE WINEMAKER: DOMAINE LE FAY D’HOMME (VINCENT CAILLE)
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 Gabbro 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, and now reckons he has the perfect combination of terroirs. Gorges is from the Cru which lies on Gabbro soil from old vines. This is a pure, stainless steel aged cuvée with real depth and charm.
We have added the delicious Vin de Soif VdF ‘Je t’aime mais J’ai soif’ to the list to, this is a wine Vincent makes for a local wine merchant friend and is fruitier, more forward than Fay d’Homme and the label is designed by one of Nantes most respected and famous artists, who also happens to be a friend of Vincent. Mouton Noir is a new Muscadet that Vincent has made from Melon gifted to him by friends from the vicinity of Monnieres to help make up the shortfall in fruit from his own vines in 2017.
