jean-marc pillot’s 2011 chassagne les baudines – yum!



Hmm – didn’t this domaine do just great things in the last couple of vintages, and maybe longer…(?) The 2010 Fairendes was brilliant at the weekend, and now this. I’ve also got a 2011 Montagny somewhere, I hope it’s as good as this! 😉

2011 Jean-Marc Pillot, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Les Baudines
Medium-pale lemon yellow. Fresh, high-toned blossom/fruit – it has a certain depth and weight about it too. Lovely freshness (you wouldn’t blink if told it was a 2010) width and weight. There’s a creamy extra dimension in the mid-palate flavour too. Truth be told, maybe there’s not quite the focus of this domaines’ 2010s, maybe… Lovely depth, layers of fresh but weighty flavours. I seem to have drunk rather more than a taster’s sip!
Rebuy – Yes

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    I had the 2002 JM Pillot Chevalier a couple years ago at Melisse in Santa Monica. The sommelier asked if I was from NYC. He has never seen that here in LA. It was excellent and a real steal at $80 a few years ago, because no one knows much of this domaine.
