Price: $101.28 excl. GST
- Tasting Notes
Pungent aromas consist primarily of petrol, white orchard fruit, matchstick and a whiff of lychee. The medium weight flavors are much more mineral-inflected than those of the Champ Gains while offering both good richness and vibrancy while displaying a refreshing salinity on the balanced and agreeably dry finish. This should amply repay mid-term cellaring.
– Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Score: 90-92
Aromas of green orchard fruit, blanched almonds and wet stones introduce the 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jean, a medium to full-bodied wine with a satiny attack and an expressive core of fruit, with lovely purity, chalky structure and succulent acids. While this nods towards Vergers in style it is one of the more giving 2017 from Pillot and it will drink pretty well out of the gates.
