Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge 1er Cru, “Morgeot—Les Fairendes”
Pillot owns two-thirds of a hectare of Pinot Noir in Morgeot in the Fairendes climat, planted in 1967. This wine exhibits a ripe character, with a brisk, driving sense of kinetic energy on the palate. The fruit and mineral elements are nicely interwoven, with a smoothly textured finish. The Morgeot Rouge is a testament to the capacity of the village of Chassagne, and Jean-Marc in particular, to produce red wines of substantial character.
