Limited stock.

This is produced from impressively old vines at between 50 and 60 years old.

The yield in 2010 was a scant 35 hl/ha - very low - yet this is repaid by the quality of the finished wine.

Orchard fruit dominates the nose, allied to briny minerals and zesty citrus notes.

The palate is bright and fresh - an uplifting blend of apple, pear and stone fruit and, unusually, a juicy, grapey finish - very attractive and excellent value.

Producer Information

Like many Burgundy lovers, we`ve long admired the exceptional purity and finesse of the Puligny-Montrachets from Louis Carillon. When we heard that his son Francois had taken over part of the family estate, we jumped at the chance to visit and taste his wines. Francois has five hectares from his father, as well as 1.5 hectares acquired from a neighbour, which represent some of the finest parcels in the appellation. They include an impressive array of Premier Crus, the wines from which are modestly priced, given both their quality and rarity. Francois` reds are from slightly lesser-known appellations, and offer excellent value compared with the big names of Burgundy.
