In the heart of the appellation Muscadet Sevre et Maine, at le Fay d’Homme near Monnières, the Caillé family have been winegrowers for 5 generations. Vincent Caillé, who took over the family vineyard in 1986, is part of a new generation of wine-growers who decided to pursue a policy of uncompromising quality. With the stubbornness of passion, he produces Muscadet Sevre et Maine of quality and expression.

On different types of soils and geology (gneiss, gabbro and orthogneiss), Vincent works the land with tillage or natural grass. Grown organically since 1996, the vines blossom on living soils that have recovered their wild tulips, a protected species affected for a long time by chemical treatments in the region. Vincent Caillé is one of the few winegrowers from Nantes to produce organic Muscadet, a true priesthood due to the oceanic climate and the propensity of Melon to welcome mildew. In the cellar, he vinifies his wines in the traditional way with indigenous yeast and long ageing on lees (particles and sediment from the winemaking process) for soft, round complex wines. His wines, with angelic prices, are of remarkable density and sensitivity that restore the image of a resurgent appellation.

X Bulles is made according to a natural method, the “ancestral method”: it is the grape sugar which insures the fermentation, the secondary fermentation and the residual sugars.

Once harvest is done, grapes are immediately pressed. After an overnight racking, fermentation starts in temperature-controlled tanks, without adding exogenous yeasts. A light filtration during fermentation is followed by the bottling which allows the secondary fermentation in our cellar. When the balance is reached, bottles are ready to be disgorged
