Jacques Carillon now owns 2.6 hectares of vines in the village appellation spread across several parcels. The average age of the vines is 35 years (as of 2011). The elevage in barrel (small and demi-muid) is for one year and 15% new oak is used; the assemblage is done and the wines are racked into stainless steel for an additional six months before being bottled with a delicate fining and light filtration.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Puligny Montrachet Village was tasted from three cuvées. The first has a taut, green apple and chalk dust-scented bouquet with moderate intensity. The palate is a little bitter on the entry, with fine weight in the mouth, although I would be seeking more tension and mineralité on the finish. The second? There are more minerals here in situ. It is simpler on the palate, though, with a slightly "fluffy" finish. The third was the best of the three with the most finesse on the nose and certainly the most tensile on the finish. Together they would appear to have similar quality to the 2015, and this is reflected in my score.
