Domaine François Carillon
Côte de Beaune
Domaine François Carillon is the legacy of the Carillon family which has been in Puligny-Montrachet since the sixteenth century. The logo currently in use was found on an engraved stone dated 1632 in a cave of the village.
Praised by critics, Carillon wines are regarded amongst the elite of the great white wines of Burgundy, and are to be found in prestigious restaurants around the world. Domaine Carillon produces white wines that are racy, elegant and fruity while embodying perfectly the terroir of each of its vineyards.
With these 15 generations of farmers behind him, François Carillon has worked in the family domaine since 1988 alongside his father and brother.
François’s main activity is cultivating the vines. Passionate about his business, he has always striven to produce the highest quality and to come closer to organic methods.
Operating an area of 6.5 hectares, Domaine François Carillon works with much passion around its team of Jean-Michel, Fred and Laurence.
Succession seems assured with the children Mathis, Paul Clement and Lisa. They are still young, and will spend the next few years soaking up the Carillon culture and learning the expertise from their father.
