Tasting Notes

  • BURG

    Burghound, June 2020,
    Score: 88-91

    This is aromatically riper than its 2017 counterpart with a whisper of the exotic to the white and yellow orchard fruit that includes a hint of passion fruit. There is both good volume and richness to the attractively textured flavors that deliver good length though not necessarily excellent complexity. However, the underlying material appears to be present such that it could develop more depth in time. Drink 2024+

    Score: 89-91

    All assembled. Clear bright and handsome. A little touch of the greengage. No feeling of dilution although not quite the fruit weight of 2017. Lovely saline touch at the finish, a slight youthful bitterness. Will be typical, generous but not heavy.

Producer

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.

Region

Puligny-Montrachet

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.
