de Montille’s 2002 Le Cailleret

Domaine de Montille Puligny-Montrache Le Cailleret 2002This was excellent at the tasting. It checked all the boxes for a fine Le Cailleret which had seen some bottle aging. The wine is at its peak I believe and will probably plateau for a little while before some of its magic is lost. I gave up my allocation (just one bottle) to F&C since I was taking the (leftover) magnum of Leflaive home, and the fact that they really love their whites. This is a wine that I don’t mind sipping very slowly over a meal with good friends so that its nuances will get the chance to emerge from its slumber after being trapped in a glass bottle for so many years.
