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. 

This wine is  from the family's plot in Premier Cru Combettes vineyard which was planted in the early 1990s. The subsoil is brown, rich and stony. The wine is intense, with a dense but supple mouth, ideally meant for aging. Age of the vines: 28 years. Soils: Clays, limestones, pebbles.
