Jean-Marc Pillot Montagny Premier Cru 2021
Excellent value white from a venerated family producer using traditional techniques. Jean-Marc Pillot is the fourth generation of his branch of the Pillot family to tend vineyards in Chassagne Montrachet. He joined his father, Jean, in 1985 to learn the craft of “vigneron”. After six years of working side-by-side, Jean-Marc assumed the direction of the domaine in 1991 with the assistance of his wife, Nadine, and his sister, Beatrice. Of course, his father, Jean, remains by his side rendering advice and valuable assistance in the vineyards. Jean-Marc has constructed a new cave, expanded the vineyards under cultivation and modified vinification and elevage to the estate, which now covers approximately fifteen hectares. The 2021 Montagny is a stony, concentrated white from a premier cru site.
