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.

Jasper Morris MW Tasting Note

A touch of lime in the colour. The nose has the generous weight of Morgeot, rarely expressive in detail in youth, and not this time. Ripe white fruit on the palate, some oak, a few tannins, a bit of sucrosity. Not yet knit together but all the ingredient are there. Shows best at the finish. Less acidity but enough structure overall. Drink from 2028-2036. 91-94 Points, October 2023.

Food Pairing

This Chassagne will pair well with fish and shellfish and soft cheeses such as goats cheese.
