A ripe but fresh nose combines notes of various white orchard fruit, acacia blossom, citrus shavings and a hint of wood. There is a really lovely mouth feel to the delicious middle weight flavors that retain a fine sense of energy while delivering solid depth and persistence. A solid Puligny villages.
The village Puligny is very nice this year, and quite ripe despite an early harvest date. It has an open and expressive bouquet of peach, white flowers and even a touch of pear, underpinned by nice concentration and minerality. Drinking Window 2016-2030. (WK)
The 2015 Puligny AC from Domaine Carillon is very pretty, as it offers up a bright and wide open bouquet of white peach, apple, chalky minerality, vanillin oak and a floral topnote redolent of apple blossoms. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and plush on the attack, with a good core, fine transparency down to the soil, bright acids and fine cut and grip on the long and juicy finish. (Drink between 2016-2030)
Jacques Carillon's 2015 Puligny Montrachet Villages was quite dramatic from tank, but it has tightened up a bit after bottling, unfurling in the glass with aromas of peach, white flowers and fresh pear. On the palate, the wine is elegant, medium to full-bodied and moderately concentrated. My suspicion is that this was a bit shut down after its recent bottling, and if so my score will look conservative. Revisiting Jacques Carillon's 2015s from bottle was a pleasure, as the vintage has meshed well with the domaine's understated, elegant style. The wines handle the warmth of the year better as one ascends the appellation hierarchy, the high points being an authoritative Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet and lovely 1er crus from Perrières and Réferts, the latter seemingly having the edge this year. The lower appellations are more sun-kissed in style and seem adapted to near-term enjoyment. (WK)
Peachy fruit dominates the nose. Lovely fruity, dry village wine with surprising energy. Leaner than I would have expected from the nose but boasts good precision. The slightly edgy finish displays good length. This wine has 4.1 grams per liter of acidity, according to Carillon.
