François Carillon’s Chassagne-Montrachet is a rich and full bodied 1er cru from a winemaker whose familial ties to Burgundy stretch back to the 17th Century.
Intense and expressive, white peach, orchard fruits, and plum are redolent on the nose. You will taste ripe, fruit-forward flavours with impressive depth and surprising freshness.
"Here too there are notes of petrol and resin along with an interesting hint of mandarin orange. There is equally good volume, density and power to the medium-bodied flavors that possess a bit better delineation on the saline, complex and lingering finale. While this should reward 6 to 8 years of cellaring, the abundance of dry extract should permit it to be enjoyable young."

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.
