Country: FranceSuggested Food Pairing: Charcuterie

Chassagne-Montrachet is located to the south of Puligny-Montrachet in the Côte de Beaune and is one of Burgundy's greatest white wine appellations. Cailleret is widely believed to be one of Chassagne-Montrachet's best Premier Cru vineyards. It benefits from its hillside location and excellent exposure, which allows its grapes to gain perfect maturity, and its rocky soils with lots of stones. The name Cailleret comes from the word Caille meaning stones.

The hue of Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru "Cailleret" is a gorgeous pale yellow. The nose gives away fresh almond, peach and vanilla aromas. An ample and round mouthfeel for this wine displaying white fruits and nut notes on the palate. Tense finish with a beautiful aromatic persistance.
