2020 De Montille Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Le Cailleret

Posted by Ian McFadden

De Montille Cailleret's greatness isn't widely known, but it is consistently one of the most exciting bottles of white Burgundy that we taste.

It's an especially fun bottle to put in people's hands. After tasting the wine, customers inevitably write to me asking for multiple bottles.

Le Cailleret boasts a rare and utterly captivating tension-filled clarity.

De Montille's Le Cailleret combines a stony intensity with incredible grace and precision. The wine boasts a quiet unfolding nuance that's fascinating. If I had to sum up the wine in only two words, they would be clarity and cut.

The 2020 Le Cailleret is gorgeous. The vintage's density melded beautifully into Caillerets sleek elegance. The result is incisive mineral length, soaring finesse, and a tightly wound multifaceted complexity.

I'm always excited to offer De Montille's Le Cailleret and the brilliance of the 2020 makes me even more so. This is a don't miss 2020 white Burgundy.

Burghound:

More restrained, cooler and more elegant aromas are composed by those of mineral reduction, a plethora of citrus elements and essence of Granny Smith apples. There is excellent verve to the dense and powerful yet wonderfully refined medium-bodied flavors that exude plenty of minerality on the bitter lemon, youthfully austere, compact and impressively persistent finish. This beautiful effort is packed with development potential and is very classy.
