2016 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Caillerets, Domaine Paul Pillot

Caille is the old French word for stone, so as you’d expect this is an incredibly stony vineyard. It’s slightly withdrawn at this stage, but there’s impressive, powerful fruit underlying, along with nice acidity. Very reserved, but you can feel the energy.

2016 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Caillerets, 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.
