Run by the talented Thierry Pillot, Domaine Paul Pillot has become one of the standout names in Chassagne, as well as the whole of the Côte d’Or. Thierry favours a low intervention approach to winemaking through not picking too late and reducing oak influence in the ageing process; wines are rarely matured in more than 10% new oak, with a mixture of oak and larger demi-muids barrels used. The results are wines of tension, purity and elegance. St Aubin 1er Cru Les Charmois Paul Pillot 2019 shows lovely fruit purity of ripe pear, citrus and white florals. The finish is long, layering biscuity and honeyed richness, balanced alongside a brisk, almost salty mineral tang. Tantalising, pure and ever so enjoyable.

“…The 2019s, more concentrated and structured, are even more impressive. As I’ve written before, Pillot is one of a handful of exciting producers who win Chassagne-Montrachet the title of the Côte de Beaune’s most dynamic white wine-producing village today, and I warmly recommend readers acquaint themselves with his wines…” – 90 – 92 Pts, William Kelley, RobertParker.com

“This is compositionally similar to the Pitangerets, but the citrus and floral nuances are more prominent. The medium-bodied flavors also possess fine density, indeed the texture is almost thick, with bracing bitter lemon zest nuances on the slightly more complex and firmer finale.” – 89-92 Pts, Allen Meadows, Burghound.com
