2014 1er Cru Caillerets Domaine Fernand & Laurent Pillot
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Creamier richer style, peach, fig and sweet melon, the palate is generous, toasty creamy, rich peach and fig, generous and with good acidity, nice length. 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.
The 2014 Meursault 1er Cru Caillerets has an attractive nose that needs a little more vigor and delineation, more mineralité to come through. It just feels a little "generic" at the moment. The palate is better with a lightly honeyed texture, a touch of spice and ginger, gaining more vigor towards the finish, although the aftertaste feels a little truncated at the moment. Let's see if it manages to muster more on the nose with bottle age. Drinking range: 2018 - 2026 Rating: 88+ Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com (Jan 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.
