2018 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. Stony with notes of lemon oil, as well as ginger spice and sea spray. This unfurls on the finish, lasting an age.

2018 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.
