Puligny-Montrachet Les Caillerets
2011
2011

This Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Les Caillerets was produced from Chardonnay vines with an age of nearly 40 years, sited in pebbly limestone soils with an eastern aspect, on the mid Caillerets slope due west of the fabled village of Puligny-Montrachet. The growing season and harvest in 2011 were superb for Chardonnay with wonderful ripeness of fruit, purity and minerality. Bottled after 16 months in barrel this is a wine of real complexity, weight and structure. A delicious wine to drink by itself or an ideal accompaniment to crab, langoustines or richer white meats such as roasted veal.
