françois carillon’s 2011 puligny…


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

    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?

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