2016 Noyers Brets Domaine Fernand & Laurent Pillot
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
We can never get enough of this superb value Puligny so were pleased to hear that 2016 was not completely catastrophic in terms of quantity here. Brighter, tighter feel than the Chasagne. More zip and kick which I really like. Fruit is brightly citrus - note of apple tang - then quite good clean drive. This is really good drinking. L&S (Oct 2017)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Salty and aromatic on the nose, with lemon and apple fruit and some orange peel character on the finish too. Pithy, herbal finish. Drinking range: 2018 - 2026 Rating: 17 Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2018)
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.
