2009 Puligny-Montrachet
Domaine FranCois Carillon
Burgundy, France

Louis Carillon has long been regarded as one of the three best producers over the past three decades in this great village that produces Burgundies. This wine comes from his son, Francois. The nose suggests cashews, while in the mouth the wine has lively acidity and an almost steely minerality. It tastes of tart pears and slightly unripe apples. The wine is probably a bit young to drink now, but this chardonnay would be lovely with the right food in a couple of years. It is a stylish drink and retails for HK$368. It is available at Kerry Wines, 2169 7700.
