Pillot Bourgogne Aligote 2018Tabula Rasa
After trying the Pinot Noir from Jean-Marc Pillot we had to try the Aliogte too!
This is a very structured white, aged in neutral barrels rather than stainless steel, which beautifully balances the bright acidity and flint-iness on the pallet. A real serious Burgundy white!
Jean-Marc Pillot is the fourth generation of his branch of the Pillot family to tend vineyards in Chassagne Montrachet. He joined his father, Jean, in 1985 to learn the craft of “vigneron”. After six years of working side-by-side, Jean-Marc assumed the direction of the domaine in 1991 with the assistance of his wife, Nadine, and his sister, Beatrice. Of course, his father, Jean, remains by his side rendering advice and valuable assistance in the vineyards (often while he is tending the garden in back of the chai!)
