2010 Morey Coffinet Chassagne Montrachet 1er Caillerets 750mL
Country Hierarchy: Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru, Chassagne-Montrachet, Cote de Beaune, Burgundy, France
Cailleret is one of Chassagne-Montrachet's best Premier Cru vineyards. It is located on the midslope of the Cote d'Or at the very southern end of the famous escarpment, and is planted mainly to Chardonnay. Cailleret Premier Cruwines are medium bodied and quite rounded, displaying notes of almond, peach and citrus peel.
The vineyard lies on the southern outskirts of the town of Chassagne-Montrachet itself, where the houses and streets give way to vines. It stretches up the hillside, looking over Champs Gain below and ending where the scrubby heights of the Cote d'Or take over. Les Fairendes and Les Grandes Ruchottes are a little way to the south.
