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.

Allen Meadows’ Burghound

A distinctly cool and very restrained nose only grudgingly reveals its aromas of green apple, mineral reduction, lemon zest and elegant floral wisps. There is first-rate volume and almost painful intensity to the big-bodied and muscular yet refined flavors that exude plenty of minerality on the austere and cuts-like-a-knife finish. This massively long effort is beautifully balanced and a wine that should easily reward 10 to 15 years of keeping. If you can find it, buy it. 93-96 Points, June 2022

Food Pairing

Ideal with meaty fish, chicken and mature cheeses.
