TASTING NOTES

A 91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Sweet Spot Outstanding! A restrained nose reluctantly exposes its aromas of mineral reduction, acacia, orange and tangerine peel plus a whiff of white peach. The racy, intense and beautifully textured flavors exude a fine bead of minerality on the sneaky long and slightly more complex finale. This stylish effort is a wine of finesse and class.  (6/2020)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Carillon began his harvest with the 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes, an expressive wine that offers up aromas of orange oil, ripe pears, nutmeg and honeycomb. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and fragrant, with good energy and a muscular core of fruit. This has also turned out well. (WK).  (2/2020)
