Puligny-Montrachet 2013, François Carillon
This Puligny had been recently bottled and was still very closed on the nose. The wine is aged for 12 months in traditional oak barrels of which 10% are new. And then finished in larger cuves for a further 6 months. We tasted this wine and others at 9.30am in the recently renovated cellar of Domaine Francois Carillon in Puligny. On the palate its bright, linear, sharp, citrusy. Even grapefruit. There is limestone and ammonites in the glass. A bright and structured wine. Needs 3 years to fully express the underlying fruit. Could only be a Puligny. Scores 25-27/30 for a Puligny.
