2019 Francois Carillon Puligny Montrachet 1er Les Perrieres ETA End of August 2021
Part of one of the old families of Burgundy who have been growing grapes for over 500 years. Francois Carillon began tending his father Louis Carillon's vineyards with his brother Jacques until 2010, when the brothers split the Domaine, each making their own label. Francois has proven himself as a great winemaker, and his wines are less demanding in price than his brothers, right there in quality, and rarer. Les Perrieres is located close to Les Combettes and Les Folatieres towards the end of the Puligny commune and houses Henri Boillot's Clos de la Mouchere enclosed vineyard. The wines from this vineyard have an intense minerality due to the roots going deep into the bedrock for water and tons of dry extract that stain the palate. Francois makes an excellent example of this wine and is about fifty dollars less than his brother's version, only making it to the USA in small quantities. 2019 is a fantastic vintage with lower yields and more classic than '18, and while still a bit of a powerful vintage, it is very balanced and elegant at the same time. These are the only bottles available in the world right now, but we only have a few cases available.
