Domaine Paul Pillot
Côte de Beaune
Paul Pillot who took over the domaine located in Chassagne-Montrachet in 1968 is the 3rd generation of this family who started this fine domaine in the beginning of the 20th century.
Over the years he expanded the domaine to the 13 hectares it owns today.
His son, Thierry started working in the domaine in 1999, but got full control only in the 2004 vintage.
His philosophy is common among other young growers in Burgundy these days, mainly understanding that the wines are actually being made mainly in the vineyards, thus investing hard work in the vineyards. The wine making approach is natural and straight forward, with minimal use of new wood – resulting in precise, terroir driven wines.
