While the '12 Taillepieds was last night's standout, the wine I simply can't get out of my head from yesterday's tasting is the '13 Cailleret. At first a whiff of lemony citrus with hints of yellow flowers lifted from the glass, yet with a few swirls, a wave of wet stone and minerals joined the fray along with crisp green apple. On the palate, lean textures fleshed out quickly upon the senses with a lashing of mineral-driven acidity and citrus tinged granny smith. The finish was long and mouthwatering with hints of tart grapefruit and herbs. What a wild ride. Wow!

Excellent stuff, needs a decant & a bit of warmth, but when open & blossoming there's not much you can ask for in high end 1er Cru Bourgogne.

Well, this is defiantly within the royalty of what this appellation is capable of, a little reduction, but there is an intensity of minerality/citrus & just the right amount of oak, Etienne you've got this one right.

Elegant and crisp - honeysuckle and winter melon on the nose. Drinking well - trying to bring on summer!

Perfect. Drinking well herbs and a hint of citrus and even a scintilla of lavemdet on the nose. nice full mouthfeel - with good acidity and Tannin. Drinking well right now.

Unusual nose. Somehow bitter or strange non-fruit aroma. But redeemed itself with its generosity on the palate. Had been decanted. Would like to sit with this one awhile. WSET party

2013 vintage. Almost fizzing. Bright acidity. Green tart apples. Lemon everywhere. Not for moi
