françois carillon’s 2011 puligny…

Update 22.11.2013(20.11.2013)billn


I really don’t know too much about how the two brothers have variously split up what was once, one of the finest addresses in Puligny – It/they didn’t appear in my book for the simple reason that whatever had been newly set-up had no track record at all. But this wine is a very tasty start, hopefully there will be many more good bottles to follow…

2011 François Carillon, Puligny-Montrachet
Nutty, floral – very pretty aromas. In the mouth there’s a little oak as back-drop to lovely, insinuating acidity and pretty, pretty sweet fruit. Short and sweet – nice wine.
Rebuy – Yes

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    Bill, You’re on site, so please try to find the details of how the parcels were split. In LA Francois’ negoce bottlings confused buyers. Maybe you can do Jacques/Francois side-by-side?
