Pillot owns half a hectare of Chardonnay in this well-positioned lieu-dit, which sits just below premier cru Champs-Gains on the slope. One third of his vines here were planted in 1950, one-third in 1990, and one-third in 2010. This is a classically rendered Chassagne-Montrachet, one which deftly balances rich, mouth-filling fruit with a powerful mineral thrust. [Note: as of the 2016 vintage, this replaced the Chassagne-Montrachet Blanc “Les Chaumes” with which we had worked for many years.]

 

BH 88 -91 Points: Background notes of matchstick set off the fresh aromas of citrus, petrol and various white-fleshed fruit wisps. There is a bit more volume to the succulent but punchy medium-bodied flavors that possess both better length as well as better balance. Note that this could easily be enjoyed young.
