Is Caillerets the best white premier cru in Chassagne? It would certainly be in with a shout. There's nothing out of place on this refined, balletic, pithily focussed white, with its savoury, almost umami like notes, crunchy acidity, stylish oak and long, nuanced finish.

The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Caillerets was showing very well, offering up aromas of ripe citrus oil, crisp green apple and white flowers, followed by a medium to full-bodied, pure and incisive palate that's nicely intense and concentrated, with tangy acids and a long, chalky finish.

This is almost always the best 1er in the range and so it is again in 2017 with its restrained and ultra-fresh nose of citrus, mineral reduction, white flower and soft spice elements. Here too the middleweight flavours are quite racy though with much more minerality that really emerges on the beautifully persistent finish where the firm core of ripe acidity makes clear that this beauty is going to require patience.

The whites are full-bodied, powerful, and fat, with aromas of almonds (green or toasted, depending on the age of the wine), ripe apples, white flowers, and honey, The finish is remarkably long.
The reds are deeply colored, full-bodied, and often quite fleshy, with classic aroma of cherry or kirsch and blackcurrant. Their firm structure is reminiscent of a wine from the Côte de Nuits.
