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 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 2008 Product #27095 (In Stock)

Lamy-Pillot farms about 0.1 acre in the upper Chassagne corner of the world's greatest Chardonnay vineyard.  This luxurious, complex, and slightly mind-boggling 2008 does this site justice.  Layered aromas and flavors of pear, apple, cream, butter, and toasted hazelnut in a creamy but bright wine that finishes long, pure, and chalky.  Young (another 10 years won't hurt) but delicious.

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

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.
