2013 Domaine Jean-Marc Pillot Chassagne-Montrachet 1er "Les Vergers Clos St-Marc"

SKU #1452683 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Pale, bright yellow. Aromas of mandarin orange and crushed lime, plus a yeasty, biscuity note I associate with Champagne from Le Mesnil; initially lifted by a floral element but closed down with air. Tactile and compellingly complex, with strong mineral-driven acidity framing the citrus of citrus fruits, crushed stone and flowers. Sweeter and less austere than the Caillerets. Really spreads out and echoes on the chewy, slowly mounting finish. It's rare to find such a low crop level with such healthy acidity (4.5 grams per liter, according to Pillot). With its outstanding depth of flavor, this wine should last a long time. (ST) Inner quote mark (9/2015)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A subtle touch of pain grillé highlights citrus and perfumed white fruit scents that are nuanced by an interesting hint of fennel. The dense, serious and extract-rich middle weight plus flavors possess a really lovely sense of verve where the same citrus character displayed by the nose resurfaces onto the gorgeously persistent and palate staining finish. This is terrific but in contrast to several wines in the range this is not likely to be a good candidate for early consumption. *Sweet spot Outstanding* Inner quote mark (6/2015)
