Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, January 2019

    The most reserved wine in the cellar but its class is apparent. With subtle aromas of peaches and white flowers, this is a very structured wine with a seductively creamy texture. Tremendously appealing and very long.

    Wine Advocate, January 2019,
    Score: 92-94

    A cuvée which sees no new wood, the 2017 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru La Grand Montagne wafts from the glass with aromas of lemon oil, white flowers and crushed chalk. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, tight-knit and searingly mineral, with considerable concentration and chalky dry extract, underpinned by a racy line of animating acidity and concluding with a long, tongue-tingling finish. This is a superb wine that will appeal to Burgundy purists.

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.

Chassagne-Montrachet

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.
