This comes from three different sites, with vines up to 50 years old, two parcels close to Puligny, one towards Meursault.

The nose presents a blend of white flowers, crushed shell minerals it is taut and focused with delicate hints of biscuit and vanillin.

The palate reflects the aromatics presented by the nose and balances certain succulence with a tension which makes this an excellent food wine - something of a steal!

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.
