Domaine Jean Marc Pillot 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Caillerets
Out of stock
Jean Marc is a believer in having wines with a strong connection to the vineyards, viticultural practices are traditional here and in this regard, he uses both the Cordon de Royat and Guyot simple pruning and training systems to control yields in his vines. Yields are further controlled through the extensive use of old vines, de-budding and green harvesting. The vineyards are plowed and no herbicides are used. High-density plantings are used to force the vines to dig deep into the ground for nutrients. Harvesting is by hand with the whites fermented and aged in oak barrels of which are up to 30% are new.
Wines are high in mineral, complex and multifaceted. Perhaps it is because his wines are made from very old vines, (with some parcels over a century old).
