En Primeur | Domaine Paul Pillot 2019

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 in comparison to his father’s era. He also avoids an excess of new oak, preferring to break in his casks with the Bourgogne Blanc and then use the one-year barrels for his Chassagnes.

Thierry describes 2019 as a year of sunshine rather than excessive heat, which explains why the grapes retained an excellent degree of fresh acidity. The clay-based soils of the village retained good reserves of water from the winter rainfall. This, combined with the lower yields following the cooler flowering season, meant his vineyards did not suffer from any hydric stress. Alcohol levels this year average 13.5%, and the wines as always have great balance and stunning purity. Sadly, yields and consequently allocations are significantly reduced this year.
