Domaine François Carillon Bourgogne Chardonnay 2019



In stock

  • One of the most respected winemakers in Puligny-Montrachet
  • A perennial outperformer
  • "Outstanding, Top Value" - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Sourced from 5 hectares in total, 90% from two plots in Puligny-Montrachet. The 2019 vintage experienced cool temperatures at flowering followed by a warmer than average summer, which led to intensely flavoured grapes with thicker than normal skins. Vinified in oak, 12% of which was new, this wine has aromas of white peach, white flower and struck match, which lead into a palate dominated by stone-fruit and pear. A perennial outperformer, and this may be the best vintage to date.

Allen Meadows

“Here too there is a whisper of petrol on the ripe and fresh aromas of white peach, passion fruit and lemon zest. There is again fine mid-palate density to the exceptionally rich, even opulent, flavors that possess fine depth and persistence. Worth checking out.” – Outstanding, Top Value
– Burghound
