Some times winemakers are overlooked simply because they build their wines differently than others do. Their wines, built around texture rather than immediate aromatic appeal, tend to get lost in a crowd. Of course, that delicacy is an asset to many. The wines of Louis Carillon are one of these wines. They get lost in a crowd, they need some bottle age, but when they hit, it's a remarkable event. They have textural depth that is like layers of the finest silk all wrapped up in rich yet remarkably pure fruit flavors. A real benchmark for me.
