Type: Red Wine
Grape: Pinot Noir
Jean-Marc Pillot is the fourth generation of his branch of the Pillot family to tend vineyards in Chassagne Montrachet. He joined his father, Jean, in 1985 to learn the craft of “vigneron”. After six years of working side-by-side, Jean-Marc assumed the direction of the domaine in 1991 with the assistance of his wife, Nadine, and his sister, Beatrice.
The estate’s Grandes Terres lieu-dit (single vineyard) is just south of Chassagne-Montrachet, and the Pinot Noir vines here are 65-70 years old.
The color is deeper than one might expect fro a Bourgogne Rouge, the nose is full of ripe wild berries and spices, and the palate is seamlessly integrated, with lovely minerality. An expressive and delicious wine.
