Francois Carillon - Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru 'Les Champs Gains' 2020


The François Carillon Domaine, created in 2010, is the long-lasting legacy of a wine family business that dates back to the 16th century in Puligny-Montrachet, a very typical wine village in south of Côte de Beaune - Burgundy’s most renown terroir for white wines.

Located in the heart of the village, the estate owns and manages today a sixteen-hectare-vineyard located in Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin. The estate produces about seventeen (depending on the harvests) different appellations, mainly in Chardonnay.

Between passion and precision, the ambition of the François Carillon Domaine is to produce fine, elegant and gourmet wines, representative of the exceptional terroirs from which they come. Referenced in best restaurants of the world, François Carillon's white wines are also praised by wine experts and wine lovers, who recognize their exactitude and balance.

François started looking after the family vineyards in 1988 and worked together with his father Louis and brother Jacques until 2010, when the estate was split between the two brothers. Since 2010 and the creation of his own wine estate, François Carillon became a renown reference in Puligny-Montrachet for the refinement of his wines. Supported by a dynamic and cohesive team of a dozen people, François deploys his energy and enthusiasm to constantly increase his products’ quality and elegance, thus pursuing the development of the family affair with as much ardor as in his early days. He ensures the future of the vineyard by transmitting his know-how and love of his work to his four children.

The François Carillon Domaine produces 16 different appellations, spread over the villages of Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin.

Among these appellations lie 9 Premiers crus (2 Saint-Aubin, 3 Chassagne-Montrachet and 4 Puligny-Montrachet), 5 villages wines  (3 Puligny-Montrachet and 1 Chassagne-Montrachet), and 4 regional wines (2 Bourgogne Chardonnay, 1 Bourgogne Aligoté and 1 Bourgogne Pinot Noir).
