Domaine Fernand and Laurent Pillot 2017 Pre Arrival Offer. Almost Sold Out

Pillot 2017 PA Sold Out 2 header
Is there a White Burgundy maker that offers better value?
 
Domaine Fernand and Laurent Pillot comprises just 15 hectares of vines located primarily in Chassagne-Montrachet. In addition to the vines in Chassagne the domaine has holdings in Pommard and Volnay as a result of of the marriage of Laurent to Marie-Anne. Despite the small size of the domaine their holdings include many of Chassagne-Montrachet's best Premier Cru sites.

Pillot Morgeots Bottle
The Domaine is included in Remington Norman's tome "The Great Domaines of Burgundy". Norman says "The cream of the cellar is undoubtedly the splendid range of Chassagnes. Lightest of the premier crus is Vergers, a crisp fresh wine for a vineyard with little soil and hard rock underneath. In such an extended, diverse vineyard as Morgeot, location has an important bearing on quality. Laurent has plots in Petit Clos and Fairendes, both with relatively fine soils, in contrast to the heavier, richer ground of low-lying sectors. The wines in Petit Clos give a wine of richness but also vivacity whereas the older plants in Fairendes contribute depth and finesse. Denser and richer is Vide-Bourse, a tiny premier cru adjoining Batard-Montrachet, which gives a fine wine, a little more backward when young but with excellent ageing potential. Noblest of all is the Grandes Ruchottes. To Laurent's surprise, every year, whatever the weather conditions, the vines give little bunches of small berries. The wine is ripe and powerful with mouth-filling substance and considerable length, yet greater finesse than the other premier crus. It essence, this is Laurent's grand cru and a worthy testament to his skill."
Laurent's whites are simply delicious and this is a great address to compare the vineyards of Chassagne. 

William Kelley of the Wine Advocate says "One of the Côte de Beaune's underrated addresses, readers looking for keenly priced white and red Burgundy of high quality would do well to acquaint themselves with Domaine Fernand & Laurent Pillot. Laurent Pillot has been working the soils since 2012 and fine-tuning élevage practices, now bottling under Diam corks to ensure the reliable evolution of his whites in bottle. What's more, with a well-appointed new winery in Chassagne-Montrachet's ZAC - opposite Pierre-Yves Colin's - and the next generation beginning to take a role in the estate, the future looks very bright. The domaine's 14.8 hectares of vines are divided into fully 63 parcels, with many prime sites in Chassagne but also enviable holdings in Pommard that formerly constituted the once-celebrated Domaine Pothier-Rieusset, to which Laurent's wife Anne-Marie is the heiress."

Pillot Grandes Ruchottes Label Wine Advocate - William Kelley:
The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Grandes Ruchottes is excellent, unfurling in the glass with notes of pear, green apple, iodine, white flowers and pastry cream. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, its texture balanced by good energy and cut, displaying impressive concentration and length. As usual, it's one of the range's high points. Pillot's parcel is planted with old vines on SO4 rootstocks, which today produce lots of small shot berries. 92-94 Points

On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, elegant and pure, with good concentration, tangy acids and a pure, chalky finish.

Girardin Clos Rousseau label
Domaine Jacques Girardin Santenay 1er Cru Clos Rousseau 2010
From our reserve stock
A lovely aged Red Burgundy at a great price.
Nick Stock: Attractive deep reddish hue and a neat sense of ripeness on the nose, this has an edge, smells of sappy young pinot noir, sweet raspberry, pomegranate and wild strawberry. Tannins are supple and even, layered nicely through the palate, it holds through the finish and leaves a bracing, clean spray of acid through the finish. 92 Points

Special $59.50

Felettig Fuees Label

Domaine Gilbert et Christine Felettig Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuees 2016
3 bottles available

Felettig is one of our superstar domaines and their Premier Crus sell out faster than any other producer in our portfolio.
 
Les Fuees is located right alongside the Grand Cru Bonnes-Mares and the vineyard is highly rated by the owners.

Wine Advocate - Neal Martin:
The 2016 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru les Fuées includes around 30% whole bunches with 50% new oak. It has a glorious bouquet, quite intense and well defined with scents of red berry fruit, damp loamy soil/woodland, hints of Earl Grey developing in the glass. This is surprisingly mercurial. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-boned tannin, structured but not imposing with a superb line of acidity, fresh and tensile right through to the very finish. The quality of this premier cru shines through here. Superb. 92-94 Points
Normally $198.96
Special $169.00
