2013 Rouge Vieilles Vignes Domaine Fernand & Laurent Pillot
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Fleshy red fruit on the nose, then the palate is surprisingly four-square, straight, rich, ripe and with a certain spice to it too. Well done. Drinking range: 2016 - 2020 L&S (Dec 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.
(45 to 50 year old vines situated in 6 separate lieux-dits). There is excellent freshness to the appealingly layered nose of pepper, red cherry, plum and soft earth scented aromas. The solidly concentrated, delicious and punchy medium-bodied flavors possess good levels of dry extract that impart a velvety mouth feel to the lingering finish where a touch of wood appears. 2018+ Rating: 88 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.
