A 95 Point Premier Cru White Burgundy for less than $100! Grand Cru Riesling

Pillot 2011 Header

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

 

Thw 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 is one of the first to publish reviews for 2011 White Burgundy and we are 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.

 

Our 2011 offer again includes 7 whites, 6 of which are Premier Cru, and 3 Premier Cru Reds from Pommard. You can view them all here.

  

Our Pre Arrival Prices are all under $100.00 a bottle, with the majority substantially less.

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

Grand Cru Riesling

Now that's a bargain!

 

Bernhard Wineck Schlossberg Label


I am a big fan of dry Riesling, particularly the wines of Alsace from classic, fresh years like 2010.

We don't have huge stocks but we do have a nice selection of Grand Crus, which when compared to Burgundy, are an absolute steal.

All of them are priced around the $50.00 a bottle mark which is incredible for the quality.

These are great wines for drinking in warm weather. They have acidity and freshness with real intensity and complexity. Delicious!
