Bourgogne, Chardonnay, Domaine Francois Carillon 2017: The Carillon family has been established in Puligny-Montrachet for sixteen generations, the first mention of a Carillon winemaker in the village dating back to the16th century. Domaine François Carillon was established following the splitting of Domaine Louis Carillon after François’ father’s retirement. François’ first crop was the 2010 vintage: a wonderful year in which to begin. François is a vineyard man, something which immediately attracted us to him and the domaine. Great wine is made in the vineyard, after all. Managed according to lutte intégrée principles; that is, as organically as possible, but with the option to treat the vines if required. 30 to 50 year vines add intensity and complexity. An exceptional Chardonnay fashioned in a Puligny style, being both floral and mineral- very elegant François’ Bourgogne Blanc comes from two plots in Puligny-Montrachet and one in Meursault. Crunchy and acidity-driven, this is bright and effusive style, brimming with green citrus, fleshypear and peach fruit, which will hit the ground running 10% new oak. Alc 13% Grapes: Chardonnay
