2014 Rouge 1er Cru Morgeot Domaine Fernand & Laurent Pillot
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Spicier wood, rich cherry and damson fruit, palate again has grippy tannins, a nice elegant red fruit core, cherries and strawberry, nice acid with some toasty wood on the finish. Drinking range: 2017 - L&S (Nov 2015)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Background notes of wood and menthol do not impede the expressiveness of the pungently earthy red and dark pinot fruit aromas that display hints of pepper and forest floor elements. There is lovely energy and underlying tension to the relatively big-bodied flavors that display touches of austerity and rusticity on the highly persistent finish. This is very Morgeot in style with its sleekly muscled palate feel yet it is well-balanced. 2020+ Rating: 89 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Apr 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 of three, one of whom worked at L&S for a stretch, learning the retail ropes.
