    Goedhuis, December 2019

    The Pillots’ parcel of Clos St Jean is just four metres from premier cru Caillerets with a similar limestone soil structure and creates a very fine wine. With hints of jasmine and honeysuckle, an initial creamy attack evolves into a zesty minerality. Bravo.

    The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Clos St Jean 1er Cru has an attractive bouquet with orange pith, mango and light petrolly scents (similar to those I discerned on the Les Mazures). The palate is well balanced with a sapid opening. Slightly honeyed in texture, this is definitely a spicy Chassagne with ginger and lemongrass lining the persistent finish. This has the upper hand over the Les Mazures. 2021 - 2030

    A vague whiff of exotic fruit is present on the slightly riper aromas of pear and apple compote, white flower and a hint of lychee. There is better richness and volume to the attractively textured medium-bodied flavors that possess sappy mouthfeel, all wrapped in an agreeably dry, clean and sneaky long finish. Drink 2025+

    Located behind the house, on a mix of red and white wine soil. Steely style, not too ripe. Put this up against Caillerets and this does still work though it cannot quite compete. Medium length.

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.
