Lamy Pillot Chassagne Montrachet Clos St Jean 2009 Product #27093 (In Stock)
Lamy Pillot Chassagne Montrachet Clos St Jean 2009 Lamy Pillot Chassagne Montrachet Clos St Jean 2009

Here’s the rare Chassagne rouge that reminds you why this village was much better known for its elegant, complex, red wines until 40 or so years ago.  Classic red Burgundy notes of dark cherry, red plum, fresh earth, and dark flowers on the nose.  Then high-toned, very pure, red and black fruits in the mouth with accents of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted mushroom, and more on the elegant, very long, palate.  Finishes dark – black cherry, mocha, spice – and intense with lingering floral, spice, and mineral notes and super-fine tannins and acids.  Young now and wanting a little air, this is very pure, focused, and sophisticated and will be just brilliant with roast chicken, duck, or even pork.  Compelling.

Lamy Pillot Chassagne Montrachet Pot Bois 2011 Product #27094 (In Stock)
Lamy Pillot Chassagne Montrachet Pot Bois 2011 Lamy Pillot Chassagne Montrachet Pot Bois 2011

From the very highest vineyard in Chassagne, this always balances fine ripeness (from low yields and later harvest dates) with zesty acidity and loads of lovely minerality.  In 2011, there’s more muscle, richness, and depth than expected with tangy orchard fruits (apricot, peach and yellow apple) complicated by notes of tarragon, mint, and green tea.  The aromas get more complex and creamy with air, the palate more round and compelling, while the finish dances with bright acidity and stony mineral notes.  Lovely wine and very fine value.

Lamy Pillot Chassagne Montrachet 1er Morgeot 2011 Product #27092 (In Stock)
Lamy Pillot Chassagne Montrachet 1er Morgeot 2011 Lamy Pillot Chassagne Montrachet 1er Morgeot 2011

Morgeot is Chassagne’s largest 1er Cru vineyard and, truth be told, much of it is better for Pinot Noir than Chardonnay.  But, winemaker Sébastian Lamy crafted a beautiful white Moregeot in 2011.  Generous aromas of ripe, spicy, pear and hazelnut with just a touch of earthy reduction open the show.  Then flavors of pear, grilled nut, and a hint of cherry dance on the palate with fantastic mid-palate energy.  The finish is long and pure with orchard fruits, butter, and chalk lingering on and on.  A great Morgeot and delicious bottle of wine.

Lamy Pillot Le Montrachet Grand Cru 2010 Product #27096 (In Stock)

From the greatest Chardonnay vineyard in the world, the small (about 20 acres) slice of mid-hill vineyard divided evenly between the communes of Chassagne and Puligny in the heart of the Cote de Beaune.  18 owners share this historic vineyard with 26 different producers making wine here.  The thin soils and perfect exposure allow Chardonnay to rich its peak of depth, complexity, minerality and density.  The last time a parcel sold, it came to about $5 million per acre and just 3,000 or so bottles are produced each year. As Alexander Dumas said, “It should be drunk on one’s knees with hat in hand.”

Herber Lamy personally farms his small plot of vineyard here in the very southeastern corner, just overlooking the road to St. Aubin, and Sébastien Caillat tends his two barrels of the nectar (one of which goes to the vineyard owner) with great care.  Tasting notes are difficult for a young Montrachet like this, which delivers sort of a distilled, concentrated, essence of Chardonnay aromas and flavors and Burgundy minerality and terroir.  A great wine to be drunk with some reverence in 2020 and beyond.
