François Carillon’s 1er cru ‘Les Chenevottes’ is a classic Chassagne-Montrachet wine. Expect a creamy mouth feel on the palate, with delectable notes of lemon curd, marmalade, spicy oak and refreshing acid.
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.
