1999 Domaine de Montille Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Caillerets"
Allen Meadows - Burghound
Quite forward on the nose for a young Roulot wine (Jean-Marc made this wine) with gorgeously detailed fruit and intense citrus and mineral notes followed by lively, medium weight flavors of real distinction. Despite the forward nose, there is plenty of underlying material plus ripe acidity all in a tightly wrapped package. Classy, long and almost exotic, this is clearly of grand cru quality and should drink well for many years to come.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Aromatic, vibrant nose of pineapple, sage and green flowers. A dry, uncompromising wine of great class. Brisk acidity and a strong floral character give the middle palate terrific lightness and lift. Powerful, even a bit youthfully aggressive, on the back end, but very long. Very impressive and built to age. 92+ (ST)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1999 Puligny-Montrachet Les Caillerets, tasted in Domaine Guy Roulot's cellar, offers white flower, stone, and hints of dried honey in its aromas. This rich, medium-bodied, broad, and beautifully elegant wine is packed with honeyed, stone flavors as well as a myriad of spices. It is well-concentrated, elegant, and begged to be consumed right from the cask. (PR)
