Here a notably earthier nose offers up notes of various dark berries, pepper and a hint of the sauvage. Like those of the Bourgogne, the middle weight flavors are round, supple and forward with an inviting verve to the mildly rustic finish that makes one feel like drinking it. This would make a fine choice for an all-around house red that could be aged for a few years too if desired. 2018+ Rating: 87 Allen Meadows, (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.
