Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Paul Pillot, Chassagne Montrachet, Rouge, Clos St Jean, 1er Cru, 2019

Effortless silky and soft-touch Chassagne. Dark and red berry fruits glide across the palate, a hint of pepper and clove compliment the sweet strawberry, chambord and vanilla pod notes. Smooth, sensual and refined. Fermented with whole berries. A vineyard with a great reputation for making red wine, this stunning Clos has poorer soils than many of the other, more clay dominated vineyards in Chassagne such as Morgeot and the result is wines of greater finesse.

Paul Pillot

The young Thierry Pillot has turned this domaine 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, 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.
