Paul Pillot, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Clos St. Jean" Rouge, 2018

$84.99
Available for Same Day Delivery (or Pickup) in Manhattan.
Pillot is one of those white wine specialists who happens to have quite a nice touch with the reds, producing very Pinot-focused wines that are quite scrumptious. Clos St. Jean is a Chassagne sight that can produce better reds than whites, often with a subtle spicy note. This is terrific.

Paul Pillot

Thierry Pillot is killing it! He is a super-talented vigneron, and since he has taken over his family's domain the quality has gone through the roof. He is one of those rare characters who is equally good at making red and white wines. They have 13 hectares of vines in the domaine, 1/3 red and 2/3 white. The whites are very concentrated because of the frost and the reds are supple and elegant, really classic. Like many young vignerons, Thierry has also set up a micro-negociant under his own name.

Robert Parker

RP 90 - 92 February 2020
"The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jean Rouge wafts from the glass with aromas of cherries, berries, dried flowers and sweet soil tones. Medium to full-bodied, rich but lively, its concentrated core of fruit is framed by powdery tannins. This cuvée hails from very old vines and was vinified with 50% whole clusters."" -William Kelley
