While surprising today, Chassagne was a village traditionally known for its red wines. Jean-Marc Pillot continues to create wines which hark back to the commune’s rich red history, and his Clos St-Jean is one of the finest examples we know. He also crafts whites of definition and complexity that sit squarely between a steely style and fuller examples.
A beautifully if subtly layered nose flashes really lovely complexity with its pure array of spiced pear, lavender, spice and citrus wisps. The equally pure and refined middle weight flavors possess an almost pungent minerality while offering fine depth and sneaky good length.
