François Carillon works 0.80ha in two plots, with 25 and 50 year old vines respectively. Light lemon, the nose is a bit subdued compared to some but there is a wealth of fruit through the middle of the palate. A little biscuity reduction too, a little bit of the sucrosity but interesting, complex and compelling nonetheless.

The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes unwinds in the glass with aromas of pastry cream, crisp orchard fruit, honeycomb and white flowers. On the palate, it's full-bodied, broad shouldered and powerful, with a dense, blocky profile that is classic Combettes. When I tasted it, the wine was quite reserved and less advanced in its élevage than most of Carillon's other cuvées, but its potential is clearly considerable.

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.
