En Primeur | Domaine Paul Pillot

Thierry Pillot and his sister Chrystelle are the fourth generation at this fine estate, founded by their great grandfather Jean-Baptiste in 1900. A 13-hectare domaine with an equal split between white and red, they cover some of the finest appellations in and around their home village of Chassagne Montrachet. Thierry prefers wines with bright tension and has therefore brought his picking dates forward since his father’s era. He also avoids an excess of new oak, preferring to break in his new casks with the Bourgogne Blanc and then use the one-year barrels for his Chassagnes.

Whilst Thierry completed his 2020 harvest before the end of August, he was careful not to go into the vineyards too early. He felt that it was imperative to achieve maximum ripeness, having noticed the stability of the acidity levels thanks to the drier conditions in the run up to harvest. These lovely wines are bold and structured, showing off the power of Chassagne and St Aubin fruit with great drive and energy.
