Domaine Francois Carillon Bourgogne Chardonnay 2017
With these 15 generations of farmers behind him, Francois Carillon has been working in the field since 1988 alongside his father and brother. His activity is mainly related to the cultivation of vines. Passionate about business, he always wanted to bring the highest quality and come closer to organic crops. Now separated from his brother, Francois Carillon is working with as much zeal and passion with a small team farming 6.5 hectares. This is a lovely Bourgogne Blanc emphasized with freshness, energy and vibrancy along with expressive, ripe fruit flavors of apple and pear. Floral notes pick up on the finish. Serve with shellfish, chicken, white fish and cheeses, such as Brie, Fromage d’Affinois and Delice de Bourgogne.

Wine AdvocateCarillon's 2017 Bourgogne Chardonnay bursts with scents of pastry cream, ripe lemons and white flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and succulent, with a rich but nicely defined profile. This is a gourmand, generous Bourgogne that will drink well in its youth.
