Winemaker's Notes

This cuvee is from the northernmost holdings of the domaine in Chassagne as it fronts onto the border with Saint Aubin and Puligny. It is here that Pillot reveals the more elegant side of Chassagne. A small holding (0.29 hectares, vines planted in 1950) that yields a wine that is generous and silky with more citrus notes than the cuvées from the southern edge of Chassagne. A barrel, or 300 bottles, is allocated for our use in the USA.

Critical Acclaim

" Here too moderate reduction renders the nose difficult to read beyond observing that the underlying fruit is clearly quite ripe. There is however excellent richness, volume and palate weight to the opulent yet detailed medium-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract on the exceptionally long and complex finish. This is a very ripe wine yet there is nothing ponderous or cumbersome about it. Impressive.

93 Points

"Reticent aromas of grapefruit and peach, with a substantial load of cinnamon and caramel oak; less floral than the Vergers. Sweet on entry, then a bit disjointed and edgy in the middle palate and tricky to taste today. In a drier style than the Vergers, and not yet showing that wine's pliancy of texture. Plenty of acid here too."
