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

Santenay

Santenay is a village and thermal resort in the Côte de Beaune district of Burgundy and is where the Côte d'Or begins in the south. 90% of wine from Santenay is red made from Pinot Noir and therest is white wine made from Chardonnay. The most noteworthy Premiers Crus are La Comme (on the border with Chassagne), Les Gravières (south of La Comme), Beauregard (to the west of Les Gravières) and Passetemps (to the south of Beauregard). The soils are varied with La Comme and Les Gravières, on the northern slope of Santenay, having a topsoil of gravel over marly-limestone. On the south side of Santenay, the soils are either brown limestone or deep in character, and the wines are more earthy. Red wines are generally well built and can be marked by a rustic and ‘terroir' quality. They are often tannic and hard in youth with earthy aromas and hints of violets,strawberries and almonds. Older wines tend to be characterised by chestnut and dried plum flavours and often have a smoky character. Premiers Crus have more noticeable floral notes. It is often said that Les Gravières has the greatest finesse, while La Comme is more robust. Santenay whites can have a youthful bouquet of hazelnuts and ferns. Within Les Gravières there is a plot producing white wine, including the very good Clos de Gravières. One of the best ambassadors for the region is Vincent Girardin.
