Tasting Notes

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.

Score: 90/92Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (75), June 2019

Aromas of green orchard fruit, blanched almonds and wet stones introduce the 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jean, a medium to full-bodied wine with a satiny attack and an expressive core of fruit, with lovely purity, chalky structure and succulent acids. While this nods towards Vergers in style it is one of the more giving 2017 from Pillot and it will drink pretty well out of the gates.
