2021 Fernand Et. Laurent Pillot 1Er Cru Les Vergers


Stony soils mix with shallow red earth and limestone rocks in the terroir of this Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru. The result is a very hot micro-climate in summer where reflections from the white stones heats the grape bunches to perfect ripeness. The resulting wine is strong and warm with a touch of underlying minerality. Citrus and white flower aromas fill the glass while the palate is straightforward and clean.

ABV % = 13.5


Chassagne-Montrachet is a village in Burgundy's Côte de Beaune which is famous for great Chardonnay. Originally named Chassagne-le Haut, in 1879 it was changed to reflect its most famous grand cru vineyard, Montrachet. Within Chassagne there are also the grand crus of Bâtard-Montrachet, and Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet (Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet are shared with the neighboring village of Puligny). There are also 48 different premiers crus in Chassagne, as well as the village wine labeled as “Chassagne-Montrachet.” Chassagne wines are known for their richness and smokiness, influenced by a combination of limestone, sand, and gravel soils.
