2017 Domaine Paul Pillot Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Clos St-Jean" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1476890 94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Thierry Pillot's 1.2ha parcel sits next to Les Caillerets, making a tag-team of outstanding white wine terroirs. Focussed, nuanced and poised, as the domaine's wines invariably are, this is especially praiseworthy in a vintage when Chassagne didn't always deliver. Subtle, chalky and rigorous, it's a wine that engages the mind as well as the palate. Drinking Window 2020 - 2027. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Pungent aromas consist primarily of petrol, white orchard fruit, matchstick and a whiff of lychee. The medium weight flavors are much more mineral-inflected than those of the Champ Gains while offering both good richness and vibrancy while displaying a refreshing salinity on the balanced and agreeably dry finish. This should amply repay mid-term cellaring. Inner quote mark (6/2019)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Aromas of green orchard fruit, blanched almonds and wet stones introduce the 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jean, a medium to full-bodied wine with a satiny attack and an expressive core of fruit, with lovely purity, chalky structure and succulent acids. While this nods towards Vergers in style it is one of the more giving 2017 from Pillot and it will drink pretty well out of the gates. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Subtle but definite oak on the nose. And a note of struck match. This has power, intensity and excellent balance. On the palate, intense and creamy lemon with a touch of spice that seems to affect the texture as much as the flavour. Great persistence. 17.5/20 points. (JH) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes

93 points Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Lighter colour with a light green tint. The nose shows less ripe flavours but they are clean and classy. Lovely yellow fruit in the mouth with a slight saline touch, A very good example from this vineyard. Tasted: October 2018."
