Winemaker's Notes

Les Caillerets, sourced from vines planted in 1969, is perhaps the most complete wine amongst the 1er Crus. Due to its distinguished position on the slope above Morgeot and Champs Gains, Les Caillerets manages to bring both power and finesse to the palate.

Critical Acclaim

"Aromas of narcissus, honeysuckle, lily-of-the-valley, white peach, and fresh lemon in Pillot's 2007 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Caillerets take exquisitely luscious form on the palate, with accompanying counterpoint from chalk, salt, and iodine as well as rich suggestions of pasted almond and pistachio. These characteristics seem to blossom into a shower of more subtle and intriguing floral, mineral, and fruit nuances in an absolutely haunting finish. This remarkably seductive, energetic, elegant, and refined wine should be worth following for close to a decade, but don't neglect it young either. There are eight barrels of it."
94 Points

"Complex, musky aromas of pear, lemon, white flowers, hazelnut and stone, with a distinctly steely quality adding interest. Very ripe and suave, with terrific inner-mouth definition and lift to the white peach, lemon and mineral flavors. Showing the open side of 2007, but this lush, rich wine has plenty of spine underneath and finishes with enticing perfume. In fact, I would not be at all surprised if this closed down in bottle. For his part, Pillot believes it can be enjoyed now or after seven or eight years. 93(+?)? points "
93 Points

"Despite their close proximity and counter to what one would normally expect, this is much more expressive with an explosive, refined, pure and equally elegant nose of white flower, lemon zest and green apple that complements perfectly the chiseled, tight, fine and ultra intense mineral-driven flavors that also seem to be squeezed directly from limestone or, as the French say, a wine with "jus de pierre" (rock juice), all wrapped in a linear, long and serious finish. 91-93 Points"
