Description

Jean-Marc Pillot is the fourth generation of hisbranch of the Pillot family to tend vineyards in Chassagne Montrachet. Hejoined his father, Jean, in 1985 to learn the craft of “vigneron”. After sixyears of working side-by-side, Jean-Marc assumed the direction of the domainein 1991 with the assistance of his wife, Nadine, and his sister, Beatrice.Jean-Marc has instituted several changes at the estate, the most prominent of whichis the construction of a new cave. Of equal importance, Jean-Marc expanded theamount of vineyards under cultivation and has made subtle modifications invinification and elevage to place his own “mark” on this estate which nowcovers approximately fifteen hectares with an annual production of, more orless, 60,000 bottles.

The domaine is dominated by its production of white wines but there are important cuvées of red wine produced here as well.Vineyard holdings are spread throughout the village of Chassagne withsubsidiary parcels in Puligny, Santenay, Meursault and Remigny (to the south).This breadth of real estate enables the Pillot family to produce a stunningrange of wines that put on brilliant display the intricacies of terroir in thissouthern tier of the Cote de Beaune. The estate's jewels are its premier crusblancs (Baudines, Chenevottes, Macherelles, Vergers, Morgeot, Caillerets, LaMaltroie and Champs Gain) and premier cru rouges (Macherelles, Morgeot, ClosSt.Jean), all within the boundaries of Chassagne Montrachet.


About the wine/Tasting notes:

Pale, bright yellow.  Enticing aromas ofgrapefruit, ginger, flowers and fresh fig.  Rich but dry and restrained,with a distinctly tactile mouth feel to the stone fruit, grapefruit and mineralflavors.  Good acidity and tension here.  The chewy, slightlyphenolic finish hints at rose petal.
