2015 Domaine Jacques Carillon Puligny-Montrachet Les Perrières 1er Cru
The 2015 Puligny-Montrachet Les Perrières 1er Cru has the most attractive nose of four tasted in this flight from this particular vineyard: well defined, with mineral notes suffusing the citrus fruit with just a hint of white peach, and neatly integrated oak. The palate is very well balanced, offering lovely orange peel and walnut oil notes and good depth, and perhaps just a little exotic toward the finish. Yet that never impedes upon the expression of Puligny-Montrachet. Very well crafted and highly recommended. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.

2015 Domaine Jacques Carillon Puligny-Montrachet Champ Canet 1er Cru
The 2015 Puligny-Montrachet Champ Canet 1er Cru displays more tropes of the warm growing season than the Champ Canet from Sauzet: brushes of dried mango, honeysuckle and a touch of beeswax. The palate is balanced, with a pleasant saltiness on the entry allied with a pleasing nuttiness that becomes more prominent toward the finish. This has cohesion and length, and quite a sophisticated finish that belies the tropically tinged nose. I would give this two or three years in bottle because I suspect it will turn into an excellent Champ Canet. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.

2015 Domaine Jacques Carillon Bienvenue-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru
The 2015 Bienvenue-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru has a slightly muddled bouquet at first, although it does appear to manifest more clarity with aeration, revealing granite and light smoky scents. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, quite tensile and poised and displaying impressive depth. I appreciate the harmony toward the finish and the sapidity that leaves you demanding more. Excellent. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.
