Aromas of pear, green apple, chamomile, lemon oil and light framing reduction introduce the 2017 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Pitangerets, a medium-bodied, concentrated and incisive wine that displays excellent cut and length. Less fleshy than the Charmois, this will appeal to purists. William Kelley 90/100 

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
