2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Le Cailleret, de Montille, 6x750ml

(these vines yielded 39 hectoliters per hectare in both 2017 and 2016, according to winemaker Brian Sieve): Pale, bright yellow. Captivating aromas of lemon drop and zest and flinty minerality, plus an emerging note of musky peach. Pure, concentrated yellow fruit flavors are given a light touch by firm acidity and underlying minerality. Offers a lovely balance of texture and vibrant citricity. The wine's brisk, slightly disjointed acidity extends the finish, which shows sneaky rising length and a petrolly nuance, not to mention terrific cut. This should enjoy a slow and graceful evolution in bottle. (The estate's firmly structured Corton-Charlemagne was a bit too disjointed to assess in the early going, with its firm lemony acidity clashing with some unfermented sugar. This fruit was picked very early but with 13.1% potential alcohol on August 28, owing to a storm in the forecast.)
