Paul Pillot Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Les Champs Gains 2016
9.0 stars
27 Sep 20

I didn’t feel this plot deserve a 1er Cru status, as from the content I probably judged this as a borderline quality between a village and a Lieux Dit. I have always mentioned Paul Pillot’s winemaking skill excels in making white burgundies with fresh and lively acidity, and this Les Champs-Gains was not an exception, as the acidity was very lively. The weakness I had about this wine was the lack of obvious fruits, not that it has no fruits, but it was really faint, consistently shadowing the acidity and hidden in the background.
