Chassagne Champs Gains, Paul Pillot 2017
The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Champs Gain displays a pretty bouquet of yellow apple, white flowers, pastry cream and beeswax. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny but incisive, with chalky extract, tangy acids and a long, beautifully delineated finish. It's another wonderfully balanced premier cru from Thierry Pillot.
|Score: 92/94||William Kelley, RobertParker.com, January 2019|
An exceptionally fresh nose is again markedly floral while offering a broader array of fruit and discreet spice nuances. There is a certain restraint to the cool and pure middle weight flavors that possess an attractive sense of underlying tension, all wrapped in a refined, detailed and sneaky long finish.
