The Carillon family domaine dates back to the 16th century. The winemaking tradition has been passed down from father to son since 1632, and possibly since 1520 when a Jehan Carillon is mentioned in archives. The domaine was further extended when Louis married; his wife was from Chassagne-Montrachet. The couple's sons, Jacques and François, continued in the family tradition, with Jacques making the wines and François looking after the vines. In 2009, the brothers decided to separate the domaine. The 2009 vintage was the last under the shared domaine, and 2010 was the first vintage where the wine was made in separate cellars. Francois' wines are known for being silkier than his brother's. The range includes premier crus from Chassagne-Montrachet: Clos St. Jean and Chenevottes, great news for fans of this 'new' domaine.

BurghoundBurghound Outstanding Value!!* There is a whiff of the exotic in the form of passion fruit present on the acacia blossom and citrus peel-inflected nose. There is again very good volume as well as a relatively sophisticated mouthfeel to the middle weight flavors where the seductive and lingering finish is supported by a moderately firm acid spine. This is an excellent Puligny villages and recommended. 89-92

Wine AdvocateThe 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Village bursts with aromas of pear, peach, warm pastry and white flowers, followed by a medium to full-bodied, satiny palate that's a lively and nicely balanced example of Carillon's fleshy, enveloping style.
