Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, January 2015

This is a lone vineyard on the hilltops, perhaps because this is a tough vineyard to work. However the result for those growers prepared to put in the hard hours is extremely gratifying. Lovely ripe aromas of almonds and hazelnuts. This balances a touch of opulence with a freshness of acidity. A strong and firm wine with layers of complexity.

Producer

Domaine Paul Pillot

Third generation wine growers, Paul began managing the family domaine in 1968, taking over from his father, Henri. It was his father that decided to begin bottling their own wines after the First World War. Paul further developed the domaine by increasing the family's vineyard holdings with various Chassagne Montrachet Premier Crus - many located on the well-draining top slope positions.The domaine now boasts a respectable 13 hectares from which they produce 15 wines. Today, Paul's oldest son Thierry has taken over the majority of winemaking responsibilities and hasdone so over the past few vintages. According to Paul, Thierry has a sort of ‘sixth sense' way ofdoing things which has only enhanced the wines' innate qualities. All we know is that they aredelicious and truly display a magical attribute that can only come from a master.

Region

Chassagne-Montrachet, White Burgundy

The white wines of Chassagne Montrachet can be difficult to distinguish from Puligny. At their most typical they are slightly fleshier and more hedonistic, but are often just as mineral and refined making the two almost inseparable. When distinguishable, they offer notes of honeysuckle, lime blossom and honey. Many have become quite approachable when young. It is larger than Puligny with vineyards totalling over 330 hectares. Though it shares both the grand cru vineyards of Le Montrachet and Bâtard Montrachet, it has sole ownership of the miniscule Criots Bâtard Montrachet. Similar to Puligny, Chassagne also grows Pinot Noir, which can be austere when young. A small amount of red Chassagne is also made.
