Paul Pillot Chassagne Montrachet, 2018, Magnum

2 in stock

This excellent Chassagne from a top Domaine has a smoky aroma with a streak of lemon and nuts. Fresh and mineral driven with a racy streak of lime running through it. Good intensity, weight and texture.

The young Thierry Pillot has turned this Domaine Paul Pillot not only into one of the greats of Chassagne, but one of the very top domaines in the whole of the Côte d'Or. His skill and enthusiasm coupled with truly fabulous vineyard holdings (which include Caillerets, La Romanee and Grande Ruchottes) make a formidable combination. Thierry favours wines of tension and transparency, and he achieves this through not picking too late and reducing the influence of oak in the ageing process. The wines are rarely matured in more than 10% new oak and he uses a mixture of barrique and larger demi-muids barrels. Scintillating, vivid Burgundies that offer a clear lens on terroir.
