2010 Jean-Marc Pillot, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Clos St.Jean
Medium-plus colour. High-toned dark fruit with herbs – seems quite Chassagne. If the nose hints at Chassagne, the flavours shout it – sweet dark fruit with a spicy depth and eventually a little barrel flavour as you hit the end of the mid-palate into the finish. Very good length too. Actually, it’s so Chassagne that I’d wait at least a year or two to tone it down – but very tasty it is…
Rebuy – Yes

    er.. this is a rouge isn’t it? Colour and fruit notes suggest so. Good value these Chassagne 1ers – like the Ramonnet Clos boudriots in particular.

    Cheers – Andrew

    I have found all Pillot Chassanges particularly dumb in youth. Don’t know enough to speculate why. They are delightful with 5+ years

    Delicious in 2015… Nice gamy flavor. Almost like toasted oak too? Not an expert here but definitely one of the best I’ve tried.
