Jean Marc Pillot - Chassagne Montrachet - Les Caillerets 1er Cru

Tasting notes

A slightly exotic nose is comprised by aromas of white peach, essence of pear, matchstick and a hint of tangerine peel. This is notably finer on the palate with tension-filled, detailed and delicious medium weight flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the markedly firm, citrusy, relatively powerful and persistent finale.

    Jean-Marc Pillot

    Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

    Jean-Marc Pillot is the fourth generation of his branch of the Pillot family to tend vineyards in Chassagne Montrachet. He joined his father, Jean, in 1985 to learn the craft of “vigneron”. After six years of working side-by-side, Jean-Marc assumed the direction of the domaine in 1991 with the assistance of his wife, Nadine, and his sister, Beatrice. Of course, his father, Jean, remains by his side rendering advice and valuable assistance in the vineyards (often while he is tending the garden in back of the chai!). Jean-Marc has instituted several changes at the estate, the most prominent of which is the construction of a new cave.

    Of equal importance, Jean-Marc expanded the amount of vineyards under cultivation and has made subtle modifications in vinification and elevage to place his own “mark” on this estate which now covers approximately fifteen hectares with an annual production of, more or less, 60,000 bottles.
