The “lesser” of his two Bourgogne Blancs.
This is what it is trying to be. An elite traditional Bourgogne blanc.
Nose is seashells with some green apple. Very brisset-like precision. Like seashells crushed fresh in the Hulk’s hands in front of you.
Palate is elegant green apples. Really juicy and clean. Some mountain stream. Like fresh stream water just off the smooth stones. As it opens more juicy delish fruit. Wow. Almost a hint of sourness that provides support.
The least expensive wine in his lineup. But it’s a wine you want to own because some nights you want precise deliciousness without the distraction of complexity.

Not as good as my last bottle. On the nose: nice toast, mineral and lemon oil with a honeyed character; good persistence, but slightly less intense than I like. On the palate, lovely acidity, lemon oil, steely mineral notes..still very focused. Good, but not where I expect this bottling to be. — 12 days ago
Gamay / Pinot Noir Blend - Light, fruity, and fresh; with a nice salivating acidity. Aperitif wine, also on dishes usually dedicated to white wine (fish). Raised on volcanic soils, the tannins are fuller than usual on this type of blend.
Assemblage Gamay/pinot Noir- Léger, fruité, et frais; avec une belle acidité salivante. Vin d’apéro, également sur des plats habituellement dédiés au vin blanc (poisson). Élevé sur des sols volcaniques, les tanins sont plus charnus qu’à l’habitude sur ce type d’assemblage. — 12 hours ago
A terrific vintage and showing already at this point. Excellent depth, concentration and wonderful texture. Black raspberries, herbs, black olives and spices. Lingering finish showing terrific intensity and focus. Bottle 2 off the list for Quince at The Farm. — 5 hours ago
My first encounter with this Moncuit and it's safe to say that the quality here is at least as good as their more famed namesake (at least for me). On a side note, does anyone know if or how Pierre and Robert are related?
This juice is plain electric. Not viciously austere like some growers these days, but definitely lean. The nose is fresh, floral, and chalky. On the palate, it is airy yet quite punchy with the citrus and mineral notes. There's a sliver of biscuit and nuts in the lingering finish. Builds with more minerality as it opens up with air. Really enjoyed this wine with dinner. Superb value! — a month ago
Stunning nose, amazing green apples, unripe pears, gorgeous purity and discreet wood, spice, so nuanced, insane inner mouth aromas. So elegant. So pure. So clean. Stunningly detailed and so concentrated and super pure. So so so elegant. Structured and deep. Amazing depth and intense minerality. Elegant and so so deep. Elite spice. Long finish. So so good and has many years ahead of it but today it is crazy. Best bottle of this yet.
After 8-9 hours open this is crazy. Gorgeous melon, honeydew now, spearmint, almost bottarga, just so detailed and complex. A kelp/seaweed thing as well. Just so distinct. Dazzlingly pure and elegant with tactile sweetness. So long and lithe. Hugely almost overwhelming mineral finish. — 10 days ago
Stunning. Is there a better Caillerets? Not for me. What a nose. Black cherries, licorice, morello cherries, even some cranberry, dried leaves, stunning and opens up beautifully. Palate is super elegant. Super fine. Amazing fruit density yet so elegant and superb minerality. This is profound. Earthy sweet fruit. Velvety tannins and huge mineral force. Long profound finish. Goes on and on. — 10 days ago
WOW! Finally was able to find a bottle in Japan and had to go back to the shop to pick up the rest of their inventory (sadly only another bottle of 2017). Ripe berries, savoury spices and nice long finish. Yet the acidity keeps everything in check so it never gets jammy. Tons to love here!! @Aaron Tan finally found one!! — 13 days ago
