Domaine Francois Carillon Bourgogne Cote D'or Chardonnay 2020


Available for:

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 Bourgogne Cote D’Or is a new appellation that was recently created. Carillon has changed their label for this wine from simply saying Bourgogne to saying Bourgogne Cote D'Or. This new AOC (AOP) covers only the Cote D’Or and excludes Chablis and Macon, so it is meant to guarantee a higher quality “Bourgogne Blanc” as Bourgogne Blanc can include fruit from the Macon, Chalonaisse and Chablis.

This 2020 Bourgogne Cote D'Or Blanc has a pale lemon yellow color, with good weight of fruit on the palate. A Chardonnay from below Puligny with plenty of volumes, white fruits take center stage. An excellent example, with the right body and good persistence. Serve with shellfish, chicken, white fish and cheeses, such as Brie, Fromage d’Affinois and Delice de Bourgogne.
