Domaine François Carillon is a Burgundy wine estate based in Puligny-Montrachet, focusing on wines made from Chardonnay. It was formed in 2010 when François and his brother Jacques decided to divide their father's estate, Domaine Louis Carillon, which had been regarded as one of the very finest in the village. The Carillon family's history in winegrowing in the area can be traced back to at least 1700.
The estate consists of around 6.5 hectares (16 acres) of vineyards, around three-quarters of which are in Puligny-Montrachet. This includes parcels in four Premier Cru vineyards, including in Les Champs Gains and Les Folatières, as well as a few precious rows of Chevalier Montrachet. Carillon also has plots in Chassagne-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin, as well as making Puligny-Montrachet village wine, and Bourgogne Rouge and Blanc wines.
François Carillon's cellars are situated in former family houses in the heart of Puligny village – they are not underground because of the region's high water table. The white wines are all made using the same methods, initially fermenting for four to six weeks, and then spending a year in barrel. Only the proportion of new oak (up to 25 percent) varies with each appellation.
AOC Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru, Cote de Beaune, Bourgogne
Country of Origin:
A mildly exotic and more elegant nose flashes notes of mandarin orange, acacia blossom, apricot, citrus peel and gentle wood nuances. There is a notably finer and more sophisticated mouth feel to the round, caressing and juicy medium-bodied flavors that brim with sappy dry extract before terminating in a softly mineral-inflected and long finish. This could use a bit more depth but more should develop with a few years of aging.
