While still in the 'line' of the wines of Laurent's cellar, this betrays it's Meursault origins with a broad density. Is that a hint of beeswax or honey? Quite an appetising touch of sweetness in the fruit, mouthwatering. Really very long, it really makes one salivate! Drinking range: 2016 - 2022 L&S (Dec 2014)

A wonderfully fresh, smoky and expressive nose reflects notes of wet stone, white orchard fruit and subtle notes of lemongrass. There is fine mid-palate concentration on the attractively mineral-inflected mediumbodied flavors that deliver very fine length though a bit less overall complexity than the best of these 1ers. 2019+ Rating: 90 Allen Meadows, 2015)

Light sweetish coconut on the nose. I could do with a bit more bite and savour. Easy but a bit chunky and chewy. Drinking range: 2017 - 2025 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - 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.
