Chassagne-Montrachet Les Macherelles 1er Cru Domaine Francois Carillon 2010

Domaine François Carillon, to date, has two adjoining parcels of premier cru les Macherelles, with vines of 15 and 45 years old, planted on clay-limestone (argilo-calcaire) their grapes blended from the outset, to make for a better marriage of the fruit. This is a glittering green-gold in colour. The nose presents a blend of sweet pastry shop notes, praline, nuts, honey and toffee complemented by breezy citrus notes. The palate is exhilarating from the outset, fresh lemon and lime adding vitality to an opulent, layered palate with good intensity, weight and persistent minerality. Intriguing and complex, this will take on additional complexity over time but is already revealing an attractive balance between innate richness and an adroit mineral focus - very pronounced through a long, poised finish. Recommended drinking from 2017-2020+

"Born from vines of 15-45 years old, Les Macharelles is rich, opulent and layered, but with a mineral focus and energy that raises the bar."

Burgundy Wine

Burgundy’s complexity and tremendous diversity are the result of geological accident. Centuries ago, faulting tore the great valley apart, easing the passage of the nearby Saône River.
