Puligny-Montrachet - blanc

Le Cailleret premier cru

Appellation: Premier Cru
Area under vine: 0.727 hectares
Location: Part of a clos, or walled vineyard - a plot bordered by a stone wall upper and lower parts.
Sun exposure: East by South-East
Terroir: Very stony limestone. The soil's superb potential is due to a variety of factors, including pebbly, permeable soil and slope providing excellent drainage.
Grape varieties: 100% Chardonnay.
Vineyard: The vines are gronw without pesticides or insecticides, and only organic fertilizer (manure) is used. Ploughing is done to aerate the soil and make it less compact. No chemical weed killers are used.
Winemaking: The grapes are handpicked into samll crates and carrefully sorted in the cellar prior to fermentation and ageing in oak barrels (50% of which are new every year).
Ageing: The wine is aged on the lees in oak barrels (30% new) for 15 months. Malolactic fermentation tends to take place fairly late, and the wine is clarified naturally without fining or filtration. Gravity flow is used for racking and bottling.
Tasting notes: Elegant mineral overtones with toasty hints of marzipan, tropical fruit, amber, and white flowers.
