Perfectly situated in the mid-slope, this parcel of Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru "Le Cailleret" is just to the north and at the same altitude as the prestigious Montrachet, just below Chevalier-Montrachet and just above the Premier Cru "Les Pucelles". Its location and the quality of its wines entirely justify its ranking as a "Grand" Premier Cru. For many wine lovers, it is a Grand Cru.

Its name "Le Cailleret" refers to its stony and rocky soils on which the vines are planted. Our Premier Cru Puligny "Le Cailleret" was planted in 1993, and this 0.85 hectare parcel is as close as it can be to Montrachet. This cru needs four to eight years to fully develop.

"Always at the top, this wine is extremely complete, well-bred and almost aristocratic. It is my favorite white wine of the Domaine." --Alix de Montille

-A beautifully and highly expressive nose of acacia blossom, cool pear and mineral reduction scents precede exceptionally well-delineated, intense and energetic flavors that possess an abundance of minerality on the impeccably balanced finish. This is quite dry but not really austere and should offer up to a decade of cellar potential. In sum, this is terrific.  Allen Meadows
