DOMAINE FRANCOIS CARILLON, Puligny-Montrachet
Domaine Francois Carillon is the legacy of the Carillon family that has been growing grapes in the Puligny-Montrachet region since the 16th century. Langton's has been dealing with Francois since he established his own label in 2010 and we're proud of how this relationship has grown.
His wines, reflecting his heritage and passion, rub shoulders with those Grand Cru and 1er Cru wine from Puligny-Montrachet and have garnered acclaim at the highest levels.
‘I cannot think of any Burgundian grower more energetic than François Carillon…’
Jancis Robinson MW
'Attractive spicy lift to the flavors of peach and orange peel. Dense, sappy and generous, offering a distinctly round texture and a slightly exotic quality to the flavors of lemon, peach and clove. The wine's sweetness is leavened by an edge of acidity. Finishes broad and long, with good mineral grip. A very successful village offering' Stephen Tanzer, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Puligny Blancs have a distinguished bouquet of almond paste, ferns, tropical fruit, amber, and white flowers. Their discreet acidity leaves room for a very soft mouthfeel and an impressive long finish.
