About

Rating:

89-92

Subtle but not invisible wood influence can be found on the ripe aromas of pear, apple and various citrus nuances. The dense and relatively powerful medium-bodied flavors possess a beguiling texture before ending in a moderately dry and lemony finish. This isn't an elegant wine, indeed Macherelles rarely is, but I like the frank character.

Product Description:

Located in the heart of the village, the estate owns and manages today a sixteen-hectare-vineyard located in Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin. The estate produces about seventeen (depending on the harvests) different appellations, mainly in Chardonnay. Between passion and precision, the ambition of the Fran├žois Carillon Domaine is to produce fine, elegant and gourmet wines, representative of the exceptional terroirs from which they come. Referenced in best restaurants of the world, Fran├žois Carillon's white wines are also praised by wine experts and wine lovers, who recognize their exactitude and balance.
