Paul Pillot

“Domaine Paul Pillot, today one of the finest addresses in the Côte de Beaune, has been directed since 2004 by the young and dynamic Thierry Pillot. Characterful, elegantly textural and mouthwateringly incisive, these are superb white Burgundies…readers shouldn’t hesitate to buy whatever bottles they can find.”

About Paul Pillot

Domaine Paul Pillot, today one of the finest addresses in the Côte de Beaune, has been directed since 2004 by the young and dynamic Thierry Pillot. Characterful, elegantly textural and mouthwateringly incisive, these are superb white Burgundies…readers shouldn’t hesitate to buy whatever bottles they can find.” -William Kelley, Wine Advocate

We are excited to be able to offer a range of wines from the exceptionally talented Thierry Pillot of Domaine Paul Pillot. Thierry, later joined by his younger sister Chrystelle, has been running his family domaine since his early 20’s and is now in the upper echelon of producers in the Cote de Beaune.

Thierry and Chrystelle are the fourth generation to farm vineyards in the village of Chassagne-Montrachet after their great-grandfather started the domaine in 1900. Thierry has focused their efforts in the vineyards, painstakingly working with vines, training them higher, and converting to organic practices.

In the cellar, the approach is non-interventionist with long maturations and small amounts of new oak. The wines are barrel fermented with native yeasts before maturing for 18 months – 12 months in oak followed by six months in stainless steel.

The wines from Thierry are always some of our favourites from our en primeur tastings – displaying a stunning depth of fruit backed by vibrant acidity and well-integrated oak. They are lovely wines of purity and intensity and are excellent wines to stock up (we have very limited stocks).

Jason at Vinified Wine has broadened my wine-drinking horizons! It’s been fantastic having an expert who can guide me to discover new favourites, as well as source hard-to-find bottles I’ve tried and loved elsewhere, and delight us every time a new case arrives. Vinified Wine provides incredible value and quality for every taste and every budget. Thank you Jason!

Jason is insanely talented at what he does. His extensive travel throughout Europe and beyond to find the best, organic and often small wine producers mean you get access to bottles which you would never otherwise have discovered. He isn’t just skilled at picking out outstanding wine. He is passionate about listening to people and what they like and then really trying to find something he thinks matches their taste (and budget.) That is what sets him apart. Getting a delivery from Vinified is a real treat.
