While there is some wood on the earthy and peppery nose of cassis and black raspberry it is much more completely integrated. There is excellent concentration and punch to the medium weight flavors that possess plenty of palate coating dry extract on the moderately austere, serious, balanced and persistent finish. This is not a wine of finesse but then again finesse is not why one buys Morgeot. 2019+ Rating: 90 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Apr 2014)

Domaine Fernand & Laurent Pillot

Laurent's wife Marie-Anne inherited half of her family's property, the Pommard domaine of Pothier-Rieusset, and he and his father have now bought the other half. The wines from this domaine represent excellent value, and they age very well too, despite being attractive young.

Laurent's 1992 Grandes Ruchottes came top of a tasting of wines of that vintage in 2012, ahead of some supposedly much 'grander' domaines. Laurent manages to pack in a lot alongside his running of the vineyard. He has a sophisticated microlight which he flies to all corners of France, he keeps and hunts hawks, and conducts the Chassagne brass band as well as dabbling in Mayoral duties - on top of being a father.
