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."

Pillot's vineyards were severely affected by the 2016 frost and production is down an incredible 70%! Ouch! Despite that the domaine has barely adjusted their prices and only the variation in the exchange rate makes the 2016's a fraction more expensive than the 2015's. This domaine remains a wonderful source of incredibely well-priced Premier Cru whites from Chassagne-Montrachet.

Laurent's whites are simply delicious and this is a great address to compare the vineyards of Chassagne. The reviews for the 2016's are excellent.

We have nearly sold out but we still have a few great bottles left including a little of the 94-Point Meursault 1er Cru Caillerets.
