About Domaine Le Fay D'Homme
In the heart of 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 high expression. On different type of soils (gneiss, gabbro and orthogneiss). 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.
Je t`aime mais j`ai soif is a wine created out of necessity due to the disastrously low yields of 2017. Vincent bought fruit from a friend in Ardeche. As such an unusual blend of Marsanne and Melon B. was born. He liked the wine so much he has contuned to make it year on year.
Wines from the Loire can be very dry and seriously high in acidity, the addition of the much softer Marsanne grape has given this wine the best of both worlds. It's bone dry and fresh but with a softer edge and wonderful notes of honeydew melon. An exceptional wine just made for pure enjoyment
