Tasting notes:

Puligny-Montrachet Clos du Cailleret is a premier cru which can hold its head high alongside many grands crus: a sublime bouquet and very powerful juice, with a pleasant freshness courtesy of its citrus aromas, a light richness and great aromatic persistence. This magnificent wine makes the perfect accompaniment to fish and shellfish dishes.

Expert ratings:

James Suckling 90 / 100

"The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos du Cailleret offers up aromas of pear, white flowers, pastry cream and blanched almonds. Medium to full-bodied, racy and chiseled, it shares the tangy, precise profile of the domaine's Folatières but carries a touch more flesh on its structural bones."

Vinous 92 / 100

"The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet Clos du Cailleret 1er Cru is taut and focused on the nose: scents of lemon thyme and crushed stone, just a little liquorice in the background. The palate is very well balanced with a vibrant entry, quite rich and powerful with a lightly spiced finish. It does miss a little nervosité compared to its peers although there is fine persistence on the aftertaste."

Decanter 94 / 100

"Domaine des Lambrays owns just over 1.5ha of Cailleret in this parcel that touches Montrachet. The grapes were picked at an ideal balance of ripeness and acidity for a year such as 2019, with the must being fermented in cask, 50% new, and aged ten months. The result is ripe and lush, but it retains a perfect lemony freshness as well, with a strong mineral/saline component and well-integrated spice from the wood. A masterful white wine, not to be overlooked." 94 /100

"Elegant, cool and very pure aromas include those of mineral reduction, acacia blossom, just sliced citrus and various white fleshed fruit scents. The notably sleeker and more mineral-driven flavors possess excellent density as well as markedly better depth and persistence on the equally well-balanced finale. The Folatières is perfectly good but this offers another level of quality."

About the Winery:

Domaine des Lambrays was established in 1363 yet it was only in 1981 that this climat was finally promoted to Grand Cru. The estate was purchased in 1996 by the Freune family and since then dramatic changes have taken place, leading to an upsurge in quality. At 8.8 hectares, this is the largest Grand Cru parcel in Burgundy under one proprietor.

As well as the grand cru itself, the Domaine also owns vines in premier cru and village vineyards in Morey, and since 1993, two premier cru vineyards in Puligny Montrachet, les Folatières and Clos du Cailleret, purchased from Domaine Chartron.

Winemaker Thierry Brouin has been in charge since 1979. The vineyards are run on more or less organic lines, with no chemical anti-rot sprays, and ploughing of the soil by horse. In the cellar, he likes to use the majority of the stems, favours punching down over pumping over, and prefers to restrain the amount of new oak – around 50% for the grand cru. The produce of young vines is downgraded to Morey St Denis 1er cru where it joins the fruit of tiny holdings of La Riotte and Le Village. The village Morey comes from La Riotte, Clos Solon, Les Larreys and especially La Bidaude which lies just above the Clos des Lambrays.

Domaine des Lambrays produces wines which possess balance, power and finesse and which fully live up to their Grand Cru status.
