Super New Cuvee for 2015 - Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Fairendes

Pillot Fairendes Header
The first vintage of a serious new Premier Cru...
Many of you will be familiar with the great value White Burgundies of Domaine Fernand and Laurent Pillot. This small domaine 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.

For 2015 the domaine has introduced two new wines - Chassagne-Montrachet Les Chenes and Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Fairendes.

Whilst in Burgundy recently I tasted all of the Pillot 2015's. The whites were fresh and delicious and the reds were something of a revelation. I didn't realize Laurent made such a range and did so at such high level.

But it was the new white cuvee 1er Cru Les Fairendes that really impressed me. Les Fairendes is a climat in Morgeots. It is regarded as the finest part of the appellation for whites producing a wine of delicacy and minerality.

In the past Laurent Pillot has incorporated his parcel into his Morgeots bottling but in 2015 the quality was such that he has bottled Les Fairendes separately. And what a great decision it was!

Super value for a top Premier Cru White Burgundy.

Normally $131.50
Pre Arrival Price $111.95

Pillot Fairendes Label First vintage of this wine. From very old vines in the best part of Morgeots. More floral on the nose than the previous Premier Crus with white flowers and citrus. The palate is intense but quite delicate, less fat than the other wines and with more acidity on the finish. The standout Chassagne Premier Cru for me today. I understand why Laurent chose to bottle this parcel separately.
