Tasting Notes: Le Cailleret Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru has a powerful, elegant bouquet with aromas of citrus and yellow fruit and hazelnut notes. The palate reveals attractive concentration and a creamy fullness, but also acidity, giving the wine excellent balance. The fresh, fruity finish offers superb length with attractive bitter notes.

The Domain: Domaine Michel Bouzereau et Fils is a producer based in Meursault in Burgundy's Côte de Beaune. The Bouzereau family have been making wine in this region for seven generations, but it wasn't until 1971 that the domaine was officially established. Today, it comprises 11 hectares (27 acres) of vineyards divided between the appellations of Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Volnay, Pommard and Beaune.

Jean-Baptiste Bouzereau inherited the domaine from his father Michel in 1999. Since then, he has implemented a series of changes to the winemaking processes previously instigated by his father, including a reduction in battonage.

The Domaine Michel Bouzereau et Fils portfolio centers predominantly on Chardonnay, with a smaller selection of Pinot Noir. The top wines are a collection of six premier crus made from parcels of Genevrières, Blagny, Perrières and Charmes in Meursault, Le Cailleret and Champ Gain in Puligny-Montrachet, as well as Les Aussy in Volnay and Les Vignes Franches in Beaune. The domaine also produces village-level wines from small plots of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines in Meursault and Pommard, in addition to Bourgogne Aligoté, Blanc and Rouge.
