More closed on the nose than the Champgains or Morgeot, there is a mineral force to this, linear and quite intense, a firmer more driven style. Drinking range: 2016 - 2020 L&S (Nov 2014)

(from Les Pasquelles). A smoky and attractively complex nose presents notes of white and yellow orchard fruit along with a pretty floral hint. There is both good volume but also reasonably good delineation to the caressing mouth coating flavors that are supported by citrus-inflected acidity on the delicious finale. This should be approachable after only a few years but reward 6 to 8. 2020+ Rating: 90 Allen Meadows, (Jun 2015)

Delicate grapefruit and some touches of tropical fruit, nice harmony on the palate with a mineral finish, really elegant overall Drinking range: 2015 - 2024 Rating: 92 Gerard Basset OBE MW MS, Decanter (Feb 2015)

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.
