I can't believe we still have some of this wine left!‏

PIllot 2011 95 Points

"The Pillots have made some of the best value white wines of the vintage" Tim Atkin MW on 2011

 

The wines of Domaine Fernand and Laurent Pillot have always delivered plenty of bang for your buck. The whites in particular are delicious with ample extract and plenty of acidity. And they are always very well priced.

 

Tim Atkin MW was one of the first to publish reviews for 2011 White Burgundy and we were delighted to see the Pillot wines do very well.

 

Of particular note was the 2011 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Grandes-Ruchottes which he scored 95 Points - a seriously high number for a Premier Cru. 

 

The wine ranked equal with such big names as Coche-Dury Meursault 1er Cru Genevrieres, Georges Roumier Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatieres and Etienne Sauzet Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatieres. Guess which wine is the cheapest?

 

It is their best wine most years so it comes as no surprise to me. 

 

We uncovered an error on our system and have found that we have some bottles available that we did not know about. So for a limited time you can pick up this high scoring wine for a terrific price.

 

Grandes-Ruchottes is one of the finest Premier Crus in Chassagne-Montrachet. The soil is very stony resulting in a classic mineral wine. If you love white Burgundy this is a "Don't Miss" wine! I can't believe we still have some available, especially at less than $100 a bottle.

The most complex white in their range. This is a serious vineyard! Just 0.37 ha of 40 year old vines in the middle of the appellation. The wine is fermented in 50% new oak.

Tim Atkin MW: All the wines from this Chassagne-based domaine are impressive in 2011, but this is the pick of the bunch: stylish, modern white Burgundy of a very high order. Forward. Rich and smoky, with creamy, lees-derived richness and superb definition. 95 Points

Morey-Coffrinet Caillerets Label  

Morey-Coffinet Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Caillerets 2008-2011 Tasting Pack

 

Caillerets is located high on the slope of Chassagne-Montrachet. The name refers to a stony soil with little earth. The resulting wine is always mineral and fresh.

 

Jasper Morris says "Today the vineyard is entirely planted with white grapes, and rightly so as this yields one of the best expressions of Chassagne: rich wines with complexity, minerality and the ability to age."

 

Morey-Coffinet are listed as a fine source for the appellation.
