2013 Rouge 1er Cru Morgeot Domaine Fernand & Laurent Pillot
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Fine and airy, a strawberry character to the fruit which is sweet and persistent. Drinking range: 2016 - 2020 L&S (Nov 2014)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Here the wood treatment is a good deal less subtle though it’s not so much as to dominate the fresh dark currant liqueur-like aromas. There is good density to the seductively textured middle weight flavors that possess more volume and complexity, all wrapped in a lingering and balanced finish where the wood displayed by the nose resurfaces. Note that my score assumes that the wood will eventually be fully integrated as the mid-palate appears to have the necessary stuffing to do so. 2019+ Rating: 89 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Apr 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.
