jean-marc pillot 2010 chassagne-montrachet clos st.jean


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.

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