2015 Rouge 1er Cru Morgeot Domaine Fernand & Laurent Pillot
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
A light caramelly sweet softness to the red fruit expression, supple, round and easy, yet with character and fresh lift. Drinking range: 2017 - 2026 L&S (Nov 2016)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Relatively generous wood that includes menthol nuances frames the more deeply pitched dark currant, plum, earth and pepper-inflected nose. The rich, even opulently textured flavors possess excellent size and weight while delivering fine length on the dense, serious and mildly warm finale. This bold effort is classic Morgeot though the abundant sap should make this enjoyable young. Drinking range: - 2023 Rating: 90 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Apr 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.
