- In stock, ready to ship
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 a 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.
Jacques Carillon owns 2.6 hectares of vines in the village appellation spread across several parcels. The average age of the vines is 38 years. The elevage in barrel (small and demi-muid) is for one year and 15% new oak is used; the assemblage is done and the wines are racked into stainless steel for an additional six months before being bottled with a delicate fining and light filtration.
