Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Paul Pillot, St Aubin, Les Charmois, 1er Cru, 2018

As usual this is less mineral than the Pitangerets and fruitier. As full of sunshine as it is, there is a distinct raciness to the fruit you rarely find in the cuvée. Radiant, crisp, yellow plum fruit. Full of juice and vitality. The soils are a little deeper here than in the St.-Aubin Pitangerets and the vines better exposed, facing south. The wines tend to be riper, fruitier and more generous in their youth as a result.

89/100
Neal Martin, Vinous

The 2018 Saint-Aubin Les Charmois 1er Cru has a taut, stony bouquet with light orange blossom and flinty scents. The palate is very saline on the entry, capturing the spiciness of this vineyard with stem ginger springing up on the finish. It just misses a little persistency but otherwise, fine.

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.
