The Chassagne Clos Saint Jean 2010 from Paul Pillot is a pure, crisp and lovely wine. In the bouquet white flowers, pear and melon – spiced with a finely grained stony minerality. On the palate it’s very focused with a quite lightfooted impression. It’s very refined and racy, with a cool pure fruit, and a almost Mosel like feel. A truly elegant wine, with a lovely energy – however not a wine for people who enjoy 14,5% heavy Australian Chardonney. Summing up – a quite light Chassagne 1er cru … very elegant and refined – really need to taste more from this producer.
