RATINGS

90-93The Wine Advocate

Flavors of red and white berries are intermingled with honeysuckle blossoms, spicy oak, and a powerful minerality. Its impressively long finish tails off on notes of clove-spiked candied pears.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet, Le Cailleret

Le Cailleret is a 7.8-acre Premier Cru vineyard in the appellation of Puligny-Montrachet, in Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. Le Cailleret is just above the Grand Cru Le Montrachet. Burgundy writer Clive Coates notes that at its best, Le Cailleret and its diminutive neighbor Les Demoiselles “make exquisite wines: not as powerful as Le Montrachet itself, but of pure breed, excellent grip and beautiful balance.”

TYPE

White Wine, Chardonnay, 1er (Premier) Cru

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
