Domaine de Montille Puligny-Montrachet les Caillerets Premiere Cru 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

White Wine Of The<br/>Vintage <br/>In the last three years this has been outstanding, and in this vintage it is of<br/>Grand Cru quality. On the palate it is pure Puligny, exploding with rich but<br/>perfectly focussed ripe, slightly exotic fruit. This is a wine of great style.<br/>(David Jones, Fine Wine Sales Advisor) <br/> <br/>This Puligny-Montrachet wine was one of the stars of Berrys' tasting<br/>trip to Burgundy in November. De Montille's Caillerets has some quite<br/>exotic flavours at the front but still maintains its sense of refinement in<br/>combination with an amazingly intense middle palate and a scintillating finish.<br/>This is very complete and should age very well indeed. <br/>(Jasper Morris MW, BBR Burgundy Buyer)

Editorial Reviews for Domaine de Montille Puligny-Montrachet les Caillerets Premiere Cru

This offers up a huge bouquet of funky notes that range from sulfury tones of spicy greens to dirt, earth, and nutty, brittle tones. Crisp, with a noticeable touch of wood still on entry and brilliant acids helping to drive the toast, dried pear and mineral flavors across the palate but then this drops off quite quickly. The inner mouth perfume is very complex and intruding, mirroring the aromas, but all in all this bottle is disappointing and most likely a victim of the vintage. 87pts

Fresh and light, with nice spiced aromas of cookie dough. Medium bodied with a mid palate of fresh acidity. There's a dominance of citrus, mellowing out onto the creamy finish. A smooth and elegant wine with a very long length of vanilla.

Wooded oak aromas. Good fresh acidity, medium bodied wine, with lots of cedar and oak and a long, toasted vanilla finish.

The age is starting to show and this wine had a particularly funky nose (sulfur? mercaptins?) that was not for me. This wine was not like the other more recent vintages i tried. The finish was better and nice and buttery.
