The 2006 Bienvenue Batard Montrachet has a slightly honeyed bouquet with touches of lanolin and yellow flowers, perhaps a hint of walnut oil developing with time. Returning later, there is an attractive touch of custard cream. The palate is well-balanced with a touch of spice on the entry and hints of tangerine emerging on the nicely poised finish that demonstrate good length, if not the panache of other vintages from Carillon. eRobertParker.com.October, 2014

A Domaine Carillon" has existed since 1502 however this specific family estate - Louis Carillon and Sons - of 11 hectares was created in 1981. Jacques and François Carillon are the current joint managers however note that from 2010, they are both setting up their own respective domains with seperate production to be called Jacques Carillon and Domain François Carillon. The wines of Louis Carillon focus on "lutte raisonee" in the vineyard and in the cellars they start with cold maceration, then once fermented go into oak barrels on their lees for 1 year, then 6 months to settle in stainless steel. 15 to 20% of oak barrels are new each year. Although they make mainly whites there are red wines from Saint-Aubin, Les Pitangerets, Chassagne- Montrachet and Mercurey.
