    August 2, 2016 - As usual, another class act from Jean-Marc Pillot. The bouquet is a gently effusive mix of yellow fruit and orange peel without turning into the tropical notes that can sometimes be evident in a fine white Burg. On the palate it's medium weight with the usual acidic backbone that I love from this particular grower and which is a little reminiscent of a top Chablis. There's nothing flabby about Pillot's wines. There's lovely freshness too although possibly a little less minerality than this wine usually displays. It doesn't quite have the power of the 2005 or the 2007, but it's still a gorgeous Chassagne, which in my opinion may occasionally be equalled by other growers, but never bettered. Estimated maturity: 2014-2020

    May 4, 2014 - Opened last night and drunk at dinner. Better today-this was my second bottle, and as the first was POXED, I didn't want to wait much longer, especially with a 2006. I see in Tanzer's note that Pillot said to wait 5 years on the '06s so 8 should have worked, but frankly, this needed way more time. A very pretty nose of white flowers, very pure fruit, but just too tight and acidic, even opened for 3 hours, at close to room temperature, and with food. Did this not complete its' malo? Not sure how to rate this-I like it, but it's a lousy QPR.
