About the Winery

The Carillon family domaine dates back to the 16th century. The winemaking tradition has been passed down from father to son since 1632 when a Carillon viticulteur is recorded, and even since 1520 when Jean Carillon is mentioned in archives. The family still occupies the same site as they did then in Puligny-Montrachet, between the church and the old château which belonged to the original nobles of the village. The motif on their label, showing a grape harvesting knife and the year 1632, is a reproduction of a carving above the door frame. The cuverie is built with the stones of the old château. Over the years, additional buildings throughout the village were added to the Carillon's holdings and converted to winemaking facilities. Today François Carillon leads the estate, crafting wines of tradition and finesse that show an extremely deft use of oak. The domaine produces Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru, villages Puligny-Montrachet, several Puligny-Montrachet Premier Crus, villages Chassagne-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Crus, a Saint-Aubin Premier Cru, and Bourgogne Chardonnay and Aligoté.
