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."

Today we offer the new 2015 White Burgundies from this domaine. They are extraordinarily well priced - Premier Crus start at just over $100 - that is a steal! All wines are available at Pre Arrival Prices which save you 15%.

Wine of the Day
Domaine Henri Magnien Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers 2015
Magnien Cazetiers label NV  
I've had a busy day tasting with some exceptional wines. First off the block were the 2014 and 2015 Reds at Domaine Henri Magnien. Then the 2015 Reds of Domaine des Chezeaux (made by Ponsot). After lunch it was Domaine Michel Noellat 2015's followed by an informative tasting of the 2015's at Domaine Pierre Damoy.
Choosing my wine of the day was far from easy. In the end I opted for the 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers from Domaine Henri Magnien. It is a stunner.
Darren Harris: Wonderful aromatic nose with spice, liquored cherries, licorice and myrtille. Real intensity on the palate with deep flavours carried by a powerful mineral spine. Fresh, racy, complex. From a 1.5 hectare parcel of 100 year old vines - the serious vine age and low cropping combine to make this a a stunning Premier Cru. Brilliant wine from a superstar in the making.

Normally $265.95
Pre Arrival Price $225.95
