Domaine François Carillon has proven to be not only a worthy successor to the much-loved wines of François’ father, Louis Carillon, but one of the most exciting producers in Puligny-Montrachet today

Francois Carillon

The domaine, which sits in the very centre of the village of Puligny-Montrachet, was established following the retirement of François’ father, the highly regarded Louis Carillon, whose vineyards were divided between François and his brother Jacques.

The family has made wine in Puligny since the 16th century.  François is the 16th generation of Carillons in Puligny-Montrachet.

François started working with his father in 1988 and was responsible for the vineyards.

We have been the domaine’s exclusive UK agent since the inaugural 2010 vintage.  2021 is their 12th vintage.

The Vineyards


The vineyards were always François responsibility at his father's domaine. 

The 6.5 hectares currently in production are farmed to lutte integrée principles; that is organically, but with the option to treat the vines if the circumstances demand it. No weed-killers are used, just ploughing, either by horse or tractor, and a mushroom-based top-dressing. 

Production is controlled from the outset with a strict pruning regime, followed by de-budding, the vines trained to optimise photosynthesis. The small, dedicated, dynamic team is driven by respect for the vineyard. The estate currently spans Chassagne-Montrachet Premiers Crus, Puligny Premiers Crus Village Puligny Montrachet and generic Bourgogne.
