Carillon Jacques Puligny Montrachet Blanc 2013
Elegant, complex and dense, this Puligny-Montrachet premier cru is the signature cuvée of an unmissable domain from the Côte de Beaune. With fantastic cellaring potential, it carries a finesse expressed through notes of citrus, white flowers and white fruits, as well as a persistent finish. To reate it, the domain chose grapes from 40-year-old Chardonnay vines before destemming, pressing and fermenting in barrels as well as a year-long maturation in oak (20% new wood), followed by six months in stainless steel vats.

Rating and reviews
As is customary with Monsieur Carillon, the 2013 Puligny AC was raised in fifteen percent new wood and is a very elegant rendition of its appellation. The very refined nose jumps from the glass in a vibrant blend of lemon, apple, chalky soil tones, white flowers and a very discreet touch of new wood. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, crisp and beautifully focused, with a lovely core of fruit, fine soil inflection and a long, youthful and zesty finish. A high class villages.
