The Carillon family has been making wine in Puligny Montrachet in Burgundy since the 16th century. The logo they use to this day has been in existence since then, it was found on an engraved stone in 1632 in a cave of the village. The wines of Carillon have been for years in the elite of the great white wines of Burgundy. Dubbed by the critics and by prestigious restaurants as high quality, Domaine Carillon produces white wines which are racy, elegant and fruity while embodying perfectly the terroir whose Chardonnays come from.

With 15 generations of family 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 premier cru Puligny-Montrachet from the famed Folatieres vineyard. Serve with shellfish, chicken, white fish and cheeses, such as Brie, Fromage d’Affinois and Delice de Bourgogne.

Wine AdvocateAromas of beeswax, tangerine, yellow orchard fruit and crisp green apple introduce the 2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières, a full-bodied, ample and voluminous wine with excellent depth at the core, succulent acids and chewy structuring extract, concluding with a long and penetrating finish. Carillon observed that this cuvée isn't far from 14% alcohol. 92-94

BurghoundA 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. 90-92
