Puligny Montrachet Le Cailleret Montille 2018
Chardonnay from Puligny-Montrachet, France – 750ml
Producer Tasting NotesIntense, deep, pure, mineral, lemon, complex. A good example of why Le Cailleret is often considered a grand cru in quality, if not appellation.
Vineyard NotesPerfectly 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.
WinemakingThanks to pneumatic presses, we can calibrate our presses to fit the quality of the grapes and the profile of the vintage. After a light settling, the musts are placed mostly in 600-liter barrels as well as in 228-liter barrels, where the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations take place.
AgeingWe finish the aging with a light fining followed by a similarly light and respectful filtration before bottling.
