2004 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Clos du Cailleret

Harvest
The harvest finds place normally around the 15 September. The grape picking is entirely manual and takes place in the space of a few days.
 

Vinification
After the whole harvest which was rigorous sorted by hand, mostly not destemmed, the traditional Burgundian vinification begins. A pneumatic press produces juices from high quality.The estate has 10 open stainless steel vats with regular "pumping over" and "treading grapes" (pigeage).
•fermentation between 15 and 18 days with daily treading
•ageing and maturing during 18 months in oak barrels (50% renewed each year)
•two rackings without fining and a light filtration (5-10%).


The white wines are raised in oak barrels with a proportion of 50 % new oak barrel. The wines were bottled in September 2006.
Notes of peach, very pleasant maturity with a light exotic nuance. Very good impression, solid, with a pleasant acidity and a nice mineral structure. The oak is very well integrated. Fine to very fine.
To drink from 2009
