2012 St-Aubin 1er Cru Les Pitangerets, Domaine Paul Pillot

Right on the boundary with Chassagne-Montrachet, Les Pitangerets benefits from excellent exposition. Beautifully fresh flavours of white flower and white peach dominate both on the nose and on the palate. This develops into a delicately creamy texture on the finish. This is very refreshing and with just enough weight to work well with meaty fish or poultry dishes.

2012 St-Aubin 1er Cru Les Pitangerets, Domaine Paul Pillot
Domaine Paul Pillot

Thierry Pillot is one of the most exciting white winemakers in Burgundy today. He and his sister, Chrystelle (who’s married to Arnaud Mortet of Gevrey Chambertin), have elevated this previously overlooked domaine to one of the stars of Chassagne. With excellent holdings in both Chassagne and St Aubin, Thierry unashamedly makes wines to suit his own palate. He loves taut wines, with fresh flavours that show their origins. And he hates the flavours of oak.
