DescriptionSince the 19th Century, generations of the Pillot family have cultivated the hills of Chassagne Montrachet. While father Fernand is approaching retirement, his son Laurent cultivates and harvests nearly 14.6 hectares of land spread over 22 different appellations of red and white wines.
The father-and-son team focus tirelessly on maintaining quality with their practices: low yields, minimal use of fertilizer, and strict hygiene. All of their wines are vinified and matured in a modern winery but Laurent pays special attention to keep with traditional Burgundian practices: barrel fermentation for the whites, minimal stirring of the lees, and aging the wines in French oak barrels from a variety of forests and coopers.
Pillot's Chassagne Montrachet vines grow on 3.46 acres spread across several parcels of clay and limestone soils. This expressive wine has a pleasant nose of green apple and honeysuckle. The wine expresses itself in harmonious lines. A round wine with a warm body, coupled with apple and white fruit flavors, hints of almonds, and finely integrated oak. An excellent companion to seafood and fish dishes including scallops and shellfish, white meats, and soft cheeses. (from Pillot)
