RATINGS

95Wine Spectator

Fantastic. Ripe and thick-textured, the flavors cut through this full-bodied whiteBurgundy like light piercing glass with mineral, lemon curd, pie tart, mineral and a subtle dosage of toasted oak...

91Stephen Tanzer

Densely packed, juicy and intensely flavored; quite firm and spicy in the middle palate. Offers more finesse than the 2000 version. Finishes with noteworthy persistence and subtlety.

PRODUCER

Louis Carillon

Domaine Louis Carillon is a 27-acre estate in Puligny-Montrachet. Among those who collect white Burgundy, the domaine is something of an insider’s secret. The family has been making wine and growing grapes in the area for nearly 400 years and the current domaine is named for the father of the two brothers, Jacques and Francois Carillon, who now run it. Carillon grows primarily Chardonnay and a small amount of Aligote. The estate includes one Grand Cru vineyard in Chevalier Montrachet, and nine Premier Crus in Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin. Clive Coates has written that the domain’s wines “are fine but understated…when I sampled them blind in bottles they always came out near the top…and (I) buy lots for myself.”
