Domaine François Carillon Puligny Montrachet Premier Cru "Les Champs Gains" 2016
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.
Notes of chalky soil, preserved citrus, mandarin and a hint of spice precede a full-bodied, concentrated wine with a cool core of taut fruit, a bright line of acidity, and a sapid, flavourful finish.
