Offering up aromas of apple blossom, crisp orchard fruit, dried white flowers and honeycomb, the lovely 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Caillerets is medium to full-bodied, satiny and expansive, with a lovely line of animating acidity, a deep core and a long, pure finish. William Kelley – The Wine Advocate

Tasting note: There is a touch of the exotic in evidence here as well with an exceptionally fresh and softly oaked mix of white and yellow orchard fruit aromas that include white peach, apricot and a floral hint. The seductively textured yet impressively dense medium weight plus flavors are blessed with an abundance of dry extract that coats the palate on the powerful, lightly stony focused and nicely long finish. This is presently less complex than the best of these 1ers though it could well develop more depth with bottle age and if it does my rating could be a bit too conservative. Allen Meadows – Burghound

(from a crop level of 50 hectoliters per hectare): A hint of reduction to the aromas of pear, stone, menthol and herbs; a bit wild in a positive way. Dense, rich and sappy, with its touch of sweetness perfectly countered by crushed-stone minerality. At once broad and vibrant, with tactile flavors of grapefruit pith, lemon and flowers conveying a subtly salty character. Really resounds on the long back end. Stephen Tanzer – Vinous media
