2014 Domaine Fernand & Laurent Pillot
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Tauter peach and citrus fruit, touch of flesh again hint of florality, some toasty wood, palate again is fleshy and ripe, good minerality, peach, citrus, lovely drive with some toasty oak on the finish. L&S (Nov 2015)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or buy 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified (as a full pack) to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Blended from six different vineyards, this is an attractively lively, refreshing and fruity example of Chassagne. Rating: 7.25/10 Susie Barrie MW (Jan 2016)
Just slightly cheesy on the nose. Then a broad spread of flavours on the palate. Easy and open. Drinking range: 2016 - 2020 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2016)
The 2014 Chassagne-Montrachet Village felt a little conservative on the nose, and does not quite grab this fecund white Burgundy vintage with both hands. The palate is better with peach and touches of dried pineapple on the entry. There is pleasing weight in the mouth with almond and white chocolate notes loitering on the finish, though it never strives for anything more than village cru quality.

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.
