Chartron Caillerets Label NV
Domaine Jean Chartron Puligny-Montrachet 1er cru Clos du Cailleret Rouge 2016
Long ago much of Puligny-Montrachet was planted to Pinot Noir. Dr Jules Lavalle's classification of 1855 had three tiers and numerous Puligny vineyards were classified as 1er Cuvee for red wines. Over the decades demand has changed and a recent article by Steen Ohman says that only 0.76 of Puligny's 211.46 hectares are currently planted to red grapes. The BIVB (Bourgogne Wine Board) website says of that a mere 0.05 hectares are Premier Cru! By my calculation that is enough for a single barrel.

In the corner of Jean Chartron's monopoly Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos du Caillerets are a small number of Pinot Noir vines. Jean-Michel uses these to produce one of Burgundy's rarest wines - Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos du Caillerets Monopole ROUGE. Interestingly Caillerets was one of Lavalle's 1er Cru red vineyards so it has a history of red production.
A couple of years ago I tasted the wine at the domaine. It was a big surprise. Whilst Chassagne-Montrachet produces significant volumes of red, I was not aware that Puligny produced any. Especially at Premier Cru level. From the research I have done this appears to be the only Premier Cru Red from Puligny-Montrachet.
The wine is unique and has to be the ultimate options wine for those with a wicked sense of humour.
Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report": 
A big, enveloping pinot nose. Direct, fresh, layered pinot - super expressive. Partly floral, modestly oaked. Small waves of finishing flavour. Simply a delicious, but ultra-rare wine.

7 bottles available.

Landed Price $216.95
Pre Arrival Price $184.50
