Wine Critic Reviews for 2017 Domaine Fernand et Laurent Pillot Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Grandes Ruchottes

The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Grandes Ruchottes is also showing very well in bottle, unwinding to reveal aromas of green orchard fruit, mint, wheat toast and pastry cream. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with superb concentration, terrific depth at the core, and racy structuring acids. The finish is long and mineral. This will reward some bottle age.

A cooler and prettier nose reflects notes of freshly sliced apple, pear, lavender and a subtle touch of wood influence. The sleeker, more refined and well-detailed middle weight flavors flash evident minerality that continues onto the lemony, intense and juicy finish. This too needs to add depth but more should gradually develop with age.

The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Grandes Ruchottes 1er Cru offers attractive white peach, honeysuckle and a subtle ash-like scents on the nose, which later turns more tea-like (Earl Grey). The palate is fresh on the entry with excellent weight and balance and well-judged acidity. The slightly biscuity finish suggests that this might be a wine to broach in its youth rather than cellar long-term. Still, thoroughly enjoyable.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
