Domaine François Carillon Bourgogne Aligoté 2018
The Domaine, created in 2010 (the family estate was split that year between François and his brother Jacques) is the legacy of a wine family business that dates back to the 16th century in Puligny-Montrachet. François now owns and manages 16 ha in Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin, producing 17 appellations, mainly in Chardonnay.
Between passion and precision, the ambition of François Carillon is to produce fine, elegant and gourmet wines, representative of the exceptional terroirs from which they come.
A pretty and expressive nose speaks of spiced apple, citrus and a variety of white-fleshed fruit aromas. The nicely dense and mineral-inflected middle weight flavors possess a more refined texture than is typically found, all wrapped in a vibrant and lingering finish.
