Goedhuis, November 2017
A blend of three parcels from across the village. Jacques likes to leave the wine on its fine lees for over a year. The wine gains a richness and tension on the palate, whilst the aromas remain floral with a hint of grilled nuts. Nervous and mineral Puligny.
Neal Martin, December 2017,
The 2016 Puligny Montrachet Village was tasted from three cuvées. The first has a taut, green apple and chalk dust-scented bouquet with moderate intensity. The palate is a little bitter on the entry, with fine weight in the mouth, although I would be seeking more tension and mineralité on the finish. The second? There are more minerals here in situ. It is simpler on the palate, though, with a slightly "fluffy" finish. The third was the best of the three with the most finesse on the nose and certainly the most tensile on the finish. Together they would appear to have similar quality to the 2015, and this is reflected in my score. Drink 2019-2026
Burghound, June 2018,
A strikingly fresh and pretty nose combines notes of citrus, apple and acacia blossom. The rich, round and generously proportioned medium weight flavors possess a seductive mouth feel and subtle minerality before concluding in a sappy, focused and moderately firm finale. A quality Puligny villages. Outstanding Top value. Drink: 2022+
Decanter, January 2018,
Jacques Carillon’s Puligny villages is shaping up nicely this year, with an expressive bouquet of citrus zest, white peach and nectarine. The wine is medium-full, moderately concentrated and elegant, with a glossy, open-knit personality. This was cropped at 50hl/ha - one wonders what it would have been like at 35hl/ha. Drink 2018-2025
Domaine Jacques Carillon
The Carillon family have been making wines in Puligny Montrachet since the early 17th century and there is nothing complicated in their winemaking philosophy. Good vineyard management means high quality fruit and then subtle but careful handling will allow maximum expression of the individual terroirs. Jacques’s wines do not focus on power, they are all about purity and integrity and deliciously refined, honeyed fruit flavours.
Puligny Montrachet is known as the most delicate of the white wine appellations south of Beaune.Its wines tend to be linear and mineral offering delicate floral and orchard fruit aromatics. Its village and premier cru vineyard area total slightly over 200 hectares but almost half of them are premier cru making them one of the highest proportions of quality vineyards in the Côte de Beaune. Several grand cru vineyards are present, the most notable being Le Montrachet and Bâtard Montrachetwhich it shares with neighbouring Chassagne, but it does have the extraordinary Chevalier Montrachet and the tiny Bienvenues Bâtard Montrachet all to itself. There are a handful of red wines grown, but they tend to be quite light and need to be drunk in their youth.
