Pale, bright yellow. Delicate aromas of yellow peach and yellow flowers. Supple, ripe and nicely concentrated, with well-integrated acidity and a persistent, chewy back end. Not yet complex but boasts attractive fruit.
Carillon describes the 2014s as round wines with good fruit. "The pHs are a bit too high for a great year, but it's really a lovely vintage, except for the hail," he told me at the beginning of June, adding that the year reminded him of 2005. Grape sugars were in the high 12.7% to 13.4% range and Carillon did not chaptalize his wines. Carillon now exploits 14 hectares of vines, of which he owns 7.
