Jacques Carillon Puligny Montrachet 2014


100% Chardonnay. The Carillon family traces its viticultural roots in Puligny back to the sixteenth century. There are documents from 1520 attesting to the presence in that locale of Jehan Carillon. The estate has always been run with scrupulous regard and respect for the traditions of Burgundy and has achieved renown as a producer of the most classic, often understated but always compelling, wines of this village. Now, beginning with the 2010 vintage, the estate has been divided in two, to be shared between Jacques and Francois, the two sons of Louis Carillon. Here we present the wines of Jacques Carillon. The Carillons have always applied the most rigorous standards to their work in the vineyards, affecting a near organic methodology. No herbicides are used; the earth is turned by the plow and by hand, the vines are pruned short to control production, a severe de-budding is practiced and a green harvest is practiced when deemed necessary. Harvest is always manual, a pneumatic press is utilized, fermentation and elevage occur in barrel for at least one year, batonnage is done (judiciously!) and, before bottling, the wines are racked into stainless steel tanks for six months to settle and clarify. The dual goals are to produce age-worthy wines that are intensely expressive of their respective terroirs. They have managed to achieve those goals with stunning regularity. To us, Carillon’s wines are your quintessential nervy, steely Puligny's. Tense, refined, elegant.
