Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

François Carillon Bourgogne Chardonnay Le Vieux Clos is a Chardonnay white wine from the AOC Bourgogne produced by Domaine François Carillon.

Domaine François Carillon is a winery that was established in Burgundy in the sixteenth century. Its wines are considered the best in the region, and are found in most of the world’s most prestigious restaurants.

The vineyards for François Carillon Bourgogne Chardonnay Le Vieux Clos are between 30 and 60 years old. They are found in plots with clay and limestone soils, optimal soils for cultivating Chardonnay.

François Carillon Bourgogne Chardonnay Le Vieux Clos is produced in the traditional style. The whole harvest is pressed when it arrives in the winery and the must is cleaned by decanting for a few hours. After undergoing alcoholic fermentation and malolactic fermentation the wine ages for 12 months in oak barrels and then spends 6 months in a foudre. Depending on the year, the wine ends up being filtered or clarified before bottling.

Domaine François Carillonproduces its wines with the aid of inert gases to avoid oxidising the must and wines, and is thus able to minimise sulphite doses in the wines.

François Carillon Bourgogne Chardonnay Le Vieux Clos is a coupage of a selection of the best barrels of Bourgogne Chardonnay Classique from the cellar. In comparison it has more body, the fruit is more present and it has a slightly fuller palate with a lingering finish.
