Review:
If any of Thierry Pillot's Premiers Crus are of Grand Cru quality, this is it in most vintages, including 2018. Made from 70-year-old vines planted on soils that are stony and very poor, it's an intense, focused, chiselled wine with chalky, wet stone aromas, leesy concentration, stylish 12% new wood and a long, tangy, mouthwatering finish. Brilliant stuff from one of the best young winemakers in the Côte de Beaune.
