En Primeur Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Champs Gains Paul Pillot will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.
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 Arnaud Mortet, of Domaine Denis Mortet in Gevrey Chambertin) 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.
Beautifully complex and interesting nose – orange peel, pear, white flowers and a touch of caramel. Crisp on the palate, wonderfully balanced with a touch of spice – superb tension and energy. Long finish.
