Jean-Marc Pillot, Chardonnay, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Les Fairendes, Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France 2018
The Morgeot is known for its broad-shouldered wines, often the most rich and unctuous of the crus of Chassagne. In this case, Pillot’s vines are located within the most renowned sector of Morgeot known as “Les Fairendes”. This quarter-hectare parcel planted in 1970 benefits from that most favorable of positions to produce a wine that, while large-scaled, has a finesse and presence that elevates it above its more rustic colleagues.
