The 2016 Champs Canet chez Carillon is a beautiful wine in the making, offering up a gorgeous nose of lemon oil, apple, pear, chalky soil tones, a touch of beeswax, vanillin oak an da topnote of citrus blossoms. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with a fine, plush core of fruit, lovely focus and grip and a very long, vibrant and racy finish. Fine, fine juice. 2021-2045+.
The 2016 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Champ Canet has a terse, wet limestone-scented bouquet that is austere but very well defined. Très Puligny! The palate is crisp and taut with very good weight in the mouth, a fine thread of acidity and real salinité on the finish that you can feel a good 30 seconds after the wine has departed. Recommended.

More elegant and denser aromas are comprised by aromas of citrus zest, spiced pear, Granny Smith apples and a floral hint. The sleek and seductively textured flavors possess lovely volume and mid-palate concentration, all wrapped in a caressing, rich and sneaky long finish. Excellent. Drink: 2023+ *Outstanding*
Pale yellow. Aromas of white peach and menthol, along with a hint of candied lemon peel and a complicating leesy nuance. At once juicy and fine-grained, with its enticing fruit flavors given shape by fresh acidity. Supple and nicely balanced, but I'd give this at least another three years in the cellar. (ST)
The Champs Canet is quite open-knit and accessible this year, with aromas of citrus, white peach and toasted wheat preceding a glossy, supple wine which misses a bit of depth and concentration for its appellation this year. Drinking Window 2018 - 2025. (WK)
