Jacques Carillon

I found the quality of the Carillon 2017s to be generally excellent and they are worth checking out. BURGHOUND

Readers will know by now that Jacques Carillon produces some of Puligny’s finest wines. Indeed, to my mind his family has had a strong claim to the title of the village’s best domaine since the mid-1990s. The Carillons have deep roots here, dating back to at least 1520, and intermarried with the Virot family—the late François Virot being the régisseur of Domaine Leflaive in its glory days. Brothers Jacques and François had worked together with their father Louis, but parted ways after the 2009 vintage, ending the Louis Carillon label and inaugurating domaines of their own. François’ style is richer and more gourmand, whereas Jacques’ is more tensile and understated. WILLIAM KELLEY, The Wine Advocate

For those unfamiliar with Jacques Carillon perhaps his Father the legendary figure for white Burgundy may be more well known, Louis Carillon who was among the regions super stars for many years until he retired in 2010 and his two sons split the domaine. They are mineral, intense and always represent a clear expression of their time and place. These are eagerly gobbled up by collectors and fans of the estate in its former incarnation. ROSCOE
