Jacques Carillon, Puligny-Montrachet 2018Regular price $111.00 Save $-111.00
Jacques Carillon is an artist when it comes to the ethereal wine regions of Puligny-Montrachet and its neighbor, Chassagne-Montrachet. Learning from his father before him, Jacques continues the art of viticulture and winemaking. His mediums are his five and a half hectares of prime real estate vineyards and his sleek usage of new oak. Even during the coldest or warmest of vintages, Jacques’ wines are balanced and elegant, portraying microscopes into the vineyard’s particular sites.
Even though the 2018 vintage was a warm one, Jacques still managed to produce an age worthy Puligny-Montrachet with tension and balance. The vines come from eleven different parcels across seven vineyards in the appellation. Vines are on average 40 years old. This bottle gets 15% new oak, though he has a six-year barrel rotation system for his used barrels. This Puligny will only get better with a few more years in the cellar.
