Unlike the others, which were bottled in November after a year in barrel, Laurent's top three whites will be bottled in January, as Laurent's son Adrien wants to experiment with an extended 'élevage'. Unracked when I tasted it, a deep colour, big nose, big impact, lots of concentrated flavour in this ripe body. Ripe pears, hints of nuts, concentrated and long. Drinking range: 2018 - 2025 L&S (Nov 2016)
Currently out of stock in our warehouse.
We may well have some bottles in one of our shops - why not give one of them a call?

Given the price of some Burgundy today – Vide Bourse 1er Cru – is a wonderfully appropriate lieu-dit Les 5 du Vin blog (Jan 2017)
Smoky and ripe on the nose. Racy and crystalline with strong Cape gooseberry fruit. Impressive! GV Drinking range: 2019 - 2026 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2017)
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.
