This domaine was established 150 years ago and is run today by Thierry Pillot. The 1er Cru Clos Saint Jean lies next door to their cellar and is surrounded by stone walls (Clos).
“This is at once slightly more elegant and a bit more aromatically complex as well with its airy and pure aromas of freshly sliced lemon, white orchard fruit and wet stone nuances. There is good volume to the moderately stony and intense medium-bodied flavors that are blessed with enough dry extract to buffer the firm acid spine that supporting the mildly austere, balanced and delicious finish. This is really quite stylish.” – 89-92 pts Allen Meadows – Burghound, June 2013
French still white wine from Cote de Beaune in Burgundy’s Cote d’Or (Bourgogne) France, made with Chardonnay.
Domaine Paul Pillot was established in 1858 by Jean-Baptiste Pillot. When his sons Alphonse and Henri (Paul Pillot’s father) turned 13 they took over the vineyard extending it and marketing wine in bottles. In 1947 Paul Pillot was born, and in 1968 he took over the vineyard. Today the Domaine is around 13 hectares and markets around 65,000 bottles. Thierry Pillot, Paul’s oldest son, now works alongside him, bringing a new perspective and renewed energy. The vineyards lie in the heart of Burgundy in Chassagne Montrachet, Saint Aubin and Santenay. Yields are controlled, fermentation is traditional, and the wines are matured in oak – up to 25% of which is new. View our range.
