2014 CHASSAGNE-MONTRACHET, Les Mazures, Paul Pillot. Burgundy
Les Mazures is a ‘Lieux Dit’ vineyard, not itself a Premier Cru but located just below the esteemed Premier Cru of Les Champs Gain.
"The young Thierry Pillot is turning this domaine into one of the greats of Chassagne. His and his sister’s skill and enthusiasm coupled with truly fabulous vineyard holdings (which include Caillerets, La Romanee and Grande Ruchottes) make a formidable combination. Thierry favors his wines of tension and transparency, he achieves this through not picking too late and reducing the influence of oak in the ageing process. The wines are rarely matured in more than 20% new oak and he uses a mixture of barrique and larger demi-muis barrels."
