Omschrijving

Chardonnay | 1e cru wijngaard| 

The 2014 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Champs Gain was perhaps the most backward of Pillot's wines that I tried, but it appears to possess the most complexity and nuance, adorned with flint and smoke aromas, a touch of walnut with aeration. The palate is fresh and sprightly on the entry. There is a taut line of acidity here, quite Chablis-like in style right through to the saline finish. This has real class and I suspect it will evolve into a beautiful, sophisticated Chassagne-Montrachet. Drink 2018-2032. 93/100." Neal Martin - The Wine Advocate

The 12-hectare Domaine Paul Pillot, today one of the finest addresses in the Côte de Beaune, has been directed since 2004 by the young and dynamic Thierry Pillot. The vines in their enviable palette of holdings are farmed organically, though not yet certified as such, and the wines they produce are matured for some 18 months on the lees, the final six being spent in stainless steel. Percentages of new wood are modest, with plenty of larger format 350-liter barrels, and the lees are never stirred. Characterful, elegantly textural and mouthwateringly incisive, these are superb white Burgundies, and to my mind, Pillot is one of a handful of exciting producers who win Chassagne-Montrachet the title of Burgundy's most interesting white wine producing village today. That he stills flies somewhat under the radar—at least relative to the quality to be found here—is perplexing. What's more, that's bound to change, and sooner rather than later, so readers shouldn't hesitate to buy whatever bottles they can find. William Kelley
