The 2010 Puligny-Montrachet Le Cailleret bristles on the palate with tons of energy and focus. The Cailleret is vibrant, chiseled and beautifully articulated from start to finish. It is at once broad yet pointed, in a marvelous expression of site and vintage. Alix de Montille did a fabulous job with the 2010. This is a superb showing. Anticipated maturity: 2014+. ||Etienne and Alix de Montille have done quite a bit of work to simplify and streamline their lineup following their purchase of the Chateau de Puligny-Montrachet. There will now be three distinct lines; all of the entry-level wines will be marketed under the Chateau de Puligny-Montrachet label, while all of the top appellations will be sold under the Domaine de Montille label. The Deux Montille range of negociant wines will be used to fill out the offering, but the number of wines will be streamlined to allow the winemaking team to have greater focus. As for the 2010s, they are just as fabulous as I thought they would be when I tasted most of the wines from barrel last year. This is the type of year in which Alix de Montille excels, and she certainly captured the essence of the vintage with these current releases.||Various American importers, including: Martin Scott Wines, Little Neck, NY; tel.

Domaine de Montille is now without doubt one of the finest producers in Burgundy. This is a domaine with considerable history: Hubert de Montille inherited the domaine in the 1950s. A pioneer of domaine bottling, he is one of the grand old men of Burgundy. His son, Etienne has been in charge since 1995, having assisted his father here since the early 1980s. Etienne moved to fully organic farming in 1995, and the transition to biodynamics began in 2005; at the same time the domaine expanded into the Côte de Nuits, with some exceptional plots in Nuits St Georges and Vosne, including a very special parcel of Les Malconsorts – Cuvee Christiane - from vines just under La Tache.
