- Tasting Notes
Here too there is enough reduction to overshadow all but the citrus nuances. There is excellent richness and volume to the caressing but stony middle weight flavors that possess admirably good mid-palate concentration before concluding in slightly more complex if perhaps not quite so persistent a finish compared to the Grande Montagne. I suspect that once both wines are in bottle that they will be quite similar qualitatively.

Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting, Paul Pillot’s 2014 Chassagne Montrachet 1Er Cru les Caillerets had a lot of reduction on the nose that completely obscured the terroir underneath. The palate is balanced with a light honeyed note on the entry, quite rich and generous with a bold, lightly spiced finish that just needs to manifest more mineralite and personality. I much prefer Pillot’s La Romanee this vintage.
