With 13 hectares in Chassagne and St Aubin, Thierry Pillot makes sublime wines from Aligoté to 1er Cru Chassagne-Montrachet. He and his sister Chrystelle (married to Alexandre Bachelet) are both charming and tasting with Thierry it’s easy to imagine his bright, lively personality carrying though into the wines. Minimum oak intervention and respect for the terroir, you are looking at sheer elegance throughout, minerality being the favoured expression.
“Always a favourite here – Aligoté is seeing a huge resurgence. We couldn’t get enough of this last year and the 2018 is equally as good. Touch of honey and marzipan – toffee apple complexity balanced beautifully with tart citrus fruit. If you buy one Aligoté this year, make it Paul Pillot’s.”
