"Impeccably well-balanced"
2020 Paul Pillot Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos St. Jean

Posted by Ian McFadden

Thierry Pillot has emerged as one of Burgundy's most talented white Burgundy producers.

The wines possess unmatched purity and crystalline character that sets them apart.

It's clear that people have noticed. It's been two years since we've offered Pillot's wines and a very long time since we've featured one of Pillot's 1er Crus.

I feel really fortunate to have landed this modest parcel. Pillot's 2020s are really impressive. We feel similar to Burghound when he writes: "I have noted this before, but Pillot has become one of the finest white wine producers in the Côte and his 2020s are yet another testament to just how good he is."

The 2020 1er Cru Clos St. Jean is a jaw-droppingly good vintage of the wine. Burghound wisely points out that the wine is "impeccably well-balanced." It's really difficult not to be wowed by how well composed the wine is and its finely tuned architecture.

Pillot is one of the most sought after producers in all of Burgundy. Before wrapping up, I should encourage you to get your orders in quickly.

"This is also markedly floral with additional notes of various white orchard fruit aromas, especially apple, as well as hints of lemon and tangerine. The sleek, intense and equally delicious medium weight flavors possess plenty of sappy dry extract while exhibiting very fine length on the youthfully austere and impeccably well-balanced finale. CSJ is almost always more interesting in red but like the Champ Gains, this is really lovely."
