Domaine François Carillon, Bourgogne Chardonnay 2014
When Louis of Domaine Louis Carillon retired in 2010, the family decided to divide the vineyard holdings, with son François establishing Domaine François Carillon with his portion of land. The result is an impressive Bourgogne, with a spicy nose and some minerality. Clean citrus fruit is backed by a lovely backbone of cream and saline, with oaky spiciness dancing around the edges. Ends in a surprisingly rich finish. Wonderful!
