The Story

Jean-Marc Pillot is the fourth generation of his branch of the Pillot family to tend vineyards in Chassagne Montrachet. He joined his father, Jean, in 1985 to learn the craft of “vigneron”. After six years of working side-by-side, Jean-Marc assumed the direction of the domaine in 1991 with the assistance of his wife, Nadine, and his sister, Beatrice. Of course, his father, Jean, remains by his side rendering advice and valuable assistance in the vineyards (often while he is tending the garden in back of the chai!). Jean-Marc has instituted several changes at the estate, the most prominent of which is the construction of a new cave. Of equal importance, Jean-Marc expanded the amount of vineyards under cultivation and has made subtle modifications in vinification and elevage to place his own “mark” on this estate which now covers approximately fifteen hectares with an annual production of, more or less, 60,000 bottles.

M+Q Notes

JM Pillot is fast becoming a top name in White Burgundy. This is a perfect introduction to his mastery. Amazing structure and flavour for a Bourgogne Blanc. Good length, depth, and has the acid to carry it. Herbaceousness on the nose.bees wax, slight wild ferment, peach with classic lemon and very slight herb.

M+Q Notes

Mussels, white wine, garlic, tomato
