2008 Paul Pillot, Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes
Dark colour. Likewise the fruit aromas are dark, mineral and herby – classic Chassagne. In the mouth this has very good acidity but with a dark fruit component that is its equal. Intense, with a little grain to the tannin. This is fun wine but it has intensity and focus too – a good 2008.
Rebuy – Yes
Whilst a cheaper bottle, there is more to enjoy here than in Bouchard P&F’s Beaune du Château – today at least.
