About the winery :
Domaine Francois Carillon is a Burgundy wine estate based in
Puligny-Montrachet, focusing on wines made from Chardonnay. It was formed in
2010 when Francois and his brother Jacques decided to divide their father's
estate, Domaine Louis Carillon, which had been regarded as one of the very
finest in the village. The Carillon family's history in winegrowing in the area
can be traced back to at least 1700.
The estate consists of around 6.5 hectares (16 acres) of vineyards, around
three-quarters of which are in Puligny-Montrachet. This includes parcels in
four Premier Cru vineyards, including in Les Champs Gains and Les Folatieres,
as well as a few precious rows of Chevalier Montrachet. Carillon also has plots
in Chassagne-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin, as well as making Puligny-Montrachet
village wine, and Bourgogne Rouge and Blanc wines.
