120 bottles available in Australia. The single 0.63-hectare vineyard of Les Mazures is one of the very finest sites for Chassagne villages, producing remarkably classy and textural Burgundies. The rocky, limestone-rich soil and the privileged location (just under the 1er Cru Les Champs Gains) go some way to explaining the quality and breed on offer. This is deep, yet very mineral and chalky with a lovely twist of reduction—a superb 2018 that we might easily have picked as a 2017 if served blind. - Importer Note
Thierry Pillot is starting to hit his groove, driving the wines of his family Domaine to greater and greater heights. With each vintage the wines here get purer, more refined and, well, just better. Thierry is great friends with Vincent Dancer, Marc Bachelet, Arnaud Mortet and many of the other young guns of Burgundy. He is part of a revolution that has been sweeping through the Côte d’Or: a zeitgeist being driven by a new generation. The wines of his father were always good, in no small part due to the quality of the holdings. However it is strikingly clear to us, and regular visitors like Allen Meadows, that this invigorated address has well and truly kicked up another gear and now bears comparison with the very best that Chassagne has to offer. There is a purity and clarity to these wines that many of the better known Chassagne Domaines cannot match. There are better known Chassagne names here, as they have been imported for longer and there is more wine, but don’t make the mistake of assuming that because you are more familiar with these other names that the wines are better. They ain’t.
The Pillot’s have first class holdings in Chassagne 1er cru sites such as La Romanée, Clos St Jean, Les Grandes Ruchottes, Les Caillerets, La Grande Montagne, etc. We do not ship everything, only those wines that truly move us each year. - Importer Note
