From two parcels planted respectively in 1965 and 1975 (on SO4 rootstock, so frequently millerandé and with very small grapes). Mid intensity on the nose. Correct and with some energy. Middle of the road, but then it’s a middle-of-the-road price. Drinking range: 2017 - 2022 Rating: 16.5+ Jancis Robinson MW OBE - 2016)

The 2014 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Vide Bourse has a strict, lime flower and flint-scented bouquet that just needs to develop more vigor in the glass. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry with a fine line of acidity, just a light touch of rosewater behind the citrus fruit with a dab of spice on the finish. Enjoy this over the next decade.

A typically well-balanced expression of this comparatively unknown Premier Cru, tucked under the flank of Bâtard-Montrachet. Savoury, complex and smoky, with some vanilla spice from barrel-fermentation, attractive fruit weight and more acidity and bite than many Bâtards. 2018-26 Drinking range: 2018 - 2026 Rating: 94 Tim Atkin MW, 2016)

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.
