Jacques operates on a six-year barrel rotation for his villages-level wines, and the modest 15% new oak allows the pure limestone typical of Carillon to shine through. The palate is lean, fine, and quite long, showing youthful verve and a stern minerality that will repay a few years of cellaring.
  • v87-89

The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Village comes from seven lieux-dits from around the appellation. It has an attractive bouquet of apple blossom, orange zest and light crustacean aromas. The palate is quite saline on the entry with a fine bead of acidity and good weight in the mouth, but just a little smudged on the finish.

The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Village bursts with aromas of pear, peach, warm pastry and white flowers, followed by a medium to full-bodied, satiny palate that's a lively and nicely balanced example of Carillon's fleshy, enveloping style.
