2020 Jean-Marc Pillot, Puligny-Montrachet, Noyer Bret 6x75cl

A truly brilliant winemaking force and winemaker very dear to the heart of Mr.Wheeler; Domaine Jean-Marc Pillot is one of the very best sources of fine Burgundy. Whilst his reds clearly demonstrate... why Chassagne first established its reputation as a red wine commune, Jean-Marc’s whites are seductive and richly-textured with superb precision, opened aromatics and flawless balance. From modest Santenay and St Romain to the exalted Chevalier-Montrachet, there is also something to suit all budgets – only one thing is certain: we all need one (or three) of Jean-Marc’s wines in our Burgundy selection. Located at the south-eastern edge of Puligny, the Noyers Brets vineyard is widely recognised as producing some of the best “village” wine in the region. Its limestone and clay soils give great weight and minerality, and in this vintage it is no exception. Classic, serious, with a typical buttery richness that is tempered by the tropical overtones of pineapple and lime. A few good years in the cellar are highly recommended for the 2020 and promise optimum drinking pleasure.
