The Estate
Alain Cailbourdin came to Pouilly-Fumé to work a harvest while attending university and never left after falling madly in love with this beautiful region. It was in 1998 that he bought his first 2 ha parcel of Silex laden Sauvignon Blanc and officially established Domaine Alain Cailbourdin. Since that time, his reputation has grown exponentially, eventually reaching the very heights of the appellation with wines of complexity and intense minerality.

In a region full of high volume, industrial wine, Alain refreshingly follows the philosophy of making traditional and high quality Sauvignon Blanc. With vineyards located in some of the most choice, Silex heavy sections of Pouilly-Fume, he works hard to not obfuscate the beauty of the terroir. Every parcel is vinified separately so that he may have the maximum control over the quality of each vintage. All the fruit is hand harvested, yields are kept very low and stainless steel tanks are used to age all of the wines. The wines display a terroir focus that has become rare in this region, and we couldn’t be happier to represent these honest and delicious wines.
