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 lovely Chassagne Montrachet which emphasizes 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.

The ripe nose of pear and apple is dominated by petrol and resin elements. The rich, concentrated and surprisingly powerful medium weight flavors are thick to the point of opulence while the lingering and citrusy finish is thick and almost chewy. This moderately rustic effort is really quite good. 89-91
