2018 Domaine Paul Pillot Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Grandes Ruchottes"

SKU #1476883 96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Les Grandes Ruchottes sits close to Les Caillerets on the slope above Chassagne-Montrachet, but produces very different styles of wine from its redder, deeper soils. This is richer and more textured than its neighbour in 2018, with greater weight and concentration, deftly integrated 20% new wood, hints of cream and butter and pithy underlying acidity. Drinking Window 2022 - 2028. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Grandes Ruchottes is showing brilliantly, revealing an incipiently complex bouquet of lime, pear, waxy citrus rind, white flowers and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and muscular, its textural attack segues into a lively, tensile mid-palate, before concluding with chalky grip. This is one of the wines that can rival its 2017 counterpart chez Pillot. (WK) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark *Burghound Outstanding!!* Like the Champ Gains this too is overtly floral in character with pretty and airy aromas of spice and citrus-suffused white orchard fruit. There is a lovely sense of underlying tension to the lightly stony and chalky-textured flavors that terminate in a linear, saline and chiseled finish. This lovely effort is like rolling small stones around in the mouth and a wine that should age gracefully over the mid-term. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

K&L Notes

93-96pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Still in barrel. Pale lemon colour. The nose is a bit more brutal and shows a little wood. None new though. Stricter behind than the Caillerets, less multi-layered on the surface but with real depth. A touch saline behind and some little red fruits such as alpine strawberrie. Lovely finish."
