Thierry Pillot, Burgundy
Thierry Pillot Bourgogne Blanc
What the critics say...
“Thierry Pillot is one of the best young white winemakers in Burgundy right now… Buy these wines before Monsieur Pillot becomes the next Burgundian superstar.” Tim Atkin MW
“Domaine Paul Pillot is one of those producers making whites with a real gleam, a luminous clarity. I taste hundreds of wines in Burgundy week, and have to scramble through my notes to check in with my views on many of them, but with Domaine Pillot I remember where the table was in the room, and where I was standing as the wine hit my tastebuds.” Victoria Moore, The Telegraph
What we say...
Outstanding; delivers way above it 'Bourgogne' label. A fresh and distinctly cool nose features notes of apple, pear and a whiff of citrus. There is excellent mid-palate density to the round, succulent and delicious flavors that terminate in an agreeably dry and crisp finish where a hint of bitter lemon arises.
The young Thierry Pillot is turning this domaine into one of the greats of Chassagne. His skill and enthusiasm coupled with truly fabulous vineyard holdings (which include Caillerets, La Romanee and Grande Ruchottes) make a formidable combination. Thierry favours wines of tension and transparency; he achieves this through not picking too late and reducing the influence of oak in the ageing process. The wines are rarely matured in more than 20% new oak and he uses a mixture of barrique and larger demi-muis barrels.
