Jacques Carillon

Jacques Carillon
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. Now, beginning with the 2010 vintage, the estate has been divided in two, to be shared between Jacques and Francois, the two sons of Louis Carillon. We will continue our work with the domaine by representing, on an exclusive basis for the United States, the wines of Jacques Carillon. The Carillons have always applied the most rigorous standards to their work in the vineyards, affecting a near organic methodology. No herbicides are used; the earth is turned by plow and by hand, the vines are pruned short to control production, a severe debudding is practiced and a green harvest is practiced when deemed necessary. Harvest is always manual, a pneumatic pressoir is utilized, fermentation and elevage occur in barrel for at least one year, batonnage is done (judiciously!) and, before bottling, the wines are racked into stainless steel cuves for six months to settle and clarify. The dual goals are to produce ageworthy wines that are intensely expressive of their respective terroirs. They have managed to achieve those goals with stunning regularity and we are confident that Jacques Carillon will continue to produce wines of which his father, Louis, will be proud. Jacques Carillon will exploit a domaine of 5.5 hectares the overwhelming majority of the vineyards being situated within Puligny Montrachet with additional holdings in Chassagne Montrachet, Saint Aubin and Mercurey.

Jacques Carillon Puligny Montrachet 2018

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.  more
