The François Carillon Domaine, created in 2010, is the long-lasting legacy of a wine family business that dates back to the 16th century in Puligny-Montrachet, a very typical wine village in the south of the Côte de Beaune - Burgundy’s most renown terroir for white wines. Located in the heart of the village, the estate today owns and manages a sixteen-hectare-vineyard located in Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin. The estate produces about seventeen (depending on the harvests) different appellations, mainly in Chardonnay. Between passion and precision, the ambition of the François Carillon Domaine is to produce fine, elegant and gourmet wines, representative of the exceptional terroirs from which they come. This white Burgundy comes from 3 plots with clay-limestone soil and located in Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault. Crunchy and with a nice acidity, this brilliant wine offers aromas of lime, pear and peaches.

Age of the vines: from 33 to 59 years

Soils: Clays and limestones

Worked in oak barrels from the harvest and for almost a year, slightly brewed, this wine is assembled and bottled about 16 months after the harvest.

Tasting Note: Golden, shiny dress. Rich and fresh aromas of yellow peaches, on a mineral-iodized background. Mouth full of fruit, juicy, delicious, with a fresh finish.

- Winery Notes

Decanter

A pretty bouquet of confit citrus and white flowers, framed by a subtle hint of oak, introduces a full-bodied, nicely concentrated wine with good depth, freshness and dimension for its level. An impressive introduction to the François Carillon range.

Burghound

A pretty nose combines notes of various white-fleshed fruit with those of soft citrus and floral nuances. There is both good volume and intensity to the slightly fruity flavors that possess acceptable depth and persistence on the attractively dry finale.
