Region: France> Burgundy> Cote de Beaune> Chassagne-Montrachet> Les Vergers.
Grape: 100% Chardonnay.
Notes: Premier Cru.
Description: Very similar to the white wines of Puligny-Montrachet with perhaps an extra note of richness. The winemakers of Chassagne-Montrachet take their profession seriously. The Domaine Jean-Marc Pillot has been very consistent in producing stellar wines with concentrated flavors notable for their abundant fruit and complex soil tones.
Jean-Marc Pillot Jr. assumed control of the operation in 1991 from his father and has taken the estate to new heights in regard to quality.
Suggested Pairing: Fish, Dover Sole, Scallops, raw bar, ceviche, crabmeat, butter or white cream sauces, lobster (steamed), salmon, trout, etc.
