A White Burgundy of quality and character, one of Carillon’s Premiers Crus from Chassagne-Montrachet. Dripping with the characteristic power and intensity that we have come to expect from this Domaine.
François Carillon has always concentrated on the vineyard, a focus borne out of early work in the vines with his father in 1988. He manages the vines organically (but not at their expense).
The whites are full-bodied, powerful, and fat, with aromas of almonds (green or toasted, depending on the age of the wine), ripe apples, white flowers, and honey, The finish is remarkably long.
The reds are deeply colored, full-bodied, and often quite fleshy, with classic aroma of cherry or kirsch and blackcurrant. Their firm structure is reminiscent of a wine from the Côte de Nuits.
