This is wine for rock-hounds. Its lively juice draws from vineyards rich in limestone soil that breathe a vivacity and raciness unique to this region. Local dialect has a name for this soil-type, a region brimming with small stones called caillottes, hence the name. It's a white that’ll cleanse the palate and marry beautifully with all kinds of food…what could be better! The time is now to jump all over this exceptional Sancerre. Racy yet succulent, the 2015 Les Caillottes is a sure thing, either by the bottle or by the case.

Product Description:

"Grown in vineyards of the Loire valley, where the terroir is rich in small limestone known locally as caillottes. Sancere 'Les Caillottes' is made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown in vineyards of the upper reaches of the Loire Valley in northern France. 'Les Cailottes' takes its name from a terroir rich in small limestones (known locally as 'caillottes'). This is an elegant dry white wine, bright with the quintessential characteristics of Sauvignon Blanc from this region: ripe citrus and fresh, grassy aromas and flavors which finish with a refreshing zippiness."- Winery
