    Pristine, powerfully mineral aromas of white peach, pineapple, white flowers, white pepper and menthol. Densely packed and austere, with a flavor of liquid rock. This is almost painful today and will need considerable bottle aging to come into harmony and express itself fully. After I swirled and spit, my palate didn't realize the wine was no longer in my mouth.

  • Jean-Marc Pillot has assumed responsibility for the management of this domaine although his father, Jean, remains by his side rendering advice and valuable assistance in the vineyards. Jean-Marc has instituted several changes at the estate, the most prominent of which is the construction of a new cave. The subtle but important modifications in vinification and elevage now in place under Jean-Marc's direction have driven this domaine to the very top of its class with wines that are intensely fruity, graceful, and precise.
    The whites are fermented in barrel, but Jean-Marc never uses more than 25% new wood so as not to overwhelm the intensity of fruit and sense of terroir specific to each wine. Batonnage is practiced to enrich the whites but is not exaggerated. Both the reds and the whites are aged 12 to 18 months in barrel. The wines are manipulated as little as possible and are bottled unfiltered to preserve their purity.
