Description

Jean-Marc Pillot took over from his father, Jean, in 1991. His ambition was to perpetuate the family tradition based on the same uncompromising standards but also develop it and take it to the next step. He immediately breathed a new energetic life into this eponymous estate: increasing its surface area, expanding its vineyard holdings to 12 hectares, and developing the bottling line. At the head of a 12-hectare estate, he offers a superb range of 1er crus in the village of Chassagne-Montrachet. The production is split roughly 50/50 between reds and whites.

Vineyard & Vinification Note

Jean-Marc’s number one priority is to respect the terroir he has inherited. The soil is ploughed all year long.

Organic fertilisers are adapted to each vine’s needs and the plot’s specific nature. Sustainable methods are used to fight against fungal diseases with maximum respect for the vines and their environment.

The harvest is done by hand.

As soon as they are cut, the bunches are brought to the vat room and put whole into the pneumatic press. The juice goes from there to the underground cellar via gravity flow. It is put into oak barrels, 30% of which are new—the wines age there under ideal conditions for 12 months after alcoholic and malolactic fermentation.

Six months in stainless steel vats before bottling for improved stabilisation and efficient natural clarification.

Tasting Note

Big bodied yet very elegant, fresh and great minerality. Vegan.

Allen Meadows’ Burghound

Firm reduction presently overshadows the underlying fruit. More interesting are the impressively constituted broad-shouldered flavors that coat the palate with sappy dry extract that carries over to intensely stony, powerful and equally long finale. This gorgeous effort is classier than the Corton-Charlemagne, but it’s not qualitatively better, at least not at this very early juncture. 93-96 Points, June 2022

Food Pairing

This is delicious with the king of fish, monkfish. Also pairs beautifully with scallops, lobster. A perfect match
