"Nicely balanced" - 2017 Pillot Saint-Aubin Charmois Magnums

Posted by Ian McFadden

Thierry Pillot’s wines possess unmatched purity and crystalline character that sets them apart.

Pillot's 2017 flaunts not only the wines' impeccable precision but also the strength of the vintage.

We agree with Burghound when he writes, "I was impressed by what I found and Pillot has definitely been on a roll over the last few vintages." The Saint Aubin 1er Cru Les Charmois is one of the great values of Pillot's lineup.

Saint Aubin has long been a home for Burgundy value seekers. Few villages can compete with the layered depth and steely verve that Saint Aubin delivers for the price.

We're especially fond of Charmois. The wine delivers utter deliciousness and class and a pristine mineral character. The 2017 Charmois has incredible balance and radiant precision.

We've tasted bottles of Charmois with 8 or 9 years of age that have been gorgeous. Now that Pillot is firing on all cylinders, we expect vintages like 2017 to age even better, especially out of magnum.

2017 Pillot Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Les Charmois Magnums

Special Magnum Price: $119.95

Burghound: "This is aromatically similar to the Pitangerets but with more prominent floral elements. The sleeker if less mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors possess a lovely texture while exhibiting good length on the nicely balanced finale."
