90pts International Wine Report – 2017 vintage

“The 2017 Bourgogne Chardonnay by Francois Carillon opens with lighter citrus zest tones with wet stone and a dusting of white seashells that all come together in the glass.  The palate has wonderful freshness with a soft mouthfeel.

Lively minerals collide with shades of kumquat and Sourdough bread on the palate. Enjoy this fantastic effort in the short-term while the wonderful freshness remains.”

“This is seriously delicious Bourgogne Blanc, and those are four words I don’t often group together. In this case, however, I really mean that it is both serious and delicious.  Often wines in this general category are composed from odds and ends and young vines grown on flatland that taste pretty
much like the word “flatland” sounds.

But man, this is juicy and invitingly aromatic and impressively concentrated and braced with a nice little touch of toasty oak. In short, it tastes like fine white Burgundy (which indeed it is), but at a price most people would pay for standard issue Chardonnay from Sonoma or Monterey that would prove only half as complex.”
