Francois Carillon

Domaine François Carillon, Chassagne-Montrachet, 1er Cru Les Macherelles 2017

RRP £77.95

The Carillon family has been in Puligny for more than 300 years. When François and Jacques worked for their father, Louis Carillon, François was responsible for the vineyards, and from 2010, when the brothers split the domaine, this has continued to be his focus and drive. This Chassagne shows an appetising aroma of warm buttered toast. A touch of yeast is evident in the hint of Marmite, which rolls into a rich and broad palate with salted caramel. There’s still quite a lot of oak showing, with a good phenolic bite and a gutsiness from this deep clay soil. Chunky, fresh and bold. Decent, punchy finish.
