Here's a quality Chardonnay from a Burgundian superstar.  If you think that's sales speak, then consider what the biggest wine reviewers are saying:

“Thierry Pillot is one of the best young white winemakers in Burgundy right now… Buy these wines before Monsieur Pillot becomes the next Burgundian superstar.” Tim Atkin MW

“Domaine Paul Pillot is one of those producers making whites with a real gleam, a luminous clarity. I taste hundreds of wines in Burgundy week, and have to scramble through my notes to check in with my views on many of them, but with Domaine Paul Pillot I remember where the table was in the room, and where I was standing as the wine hit my tastebuds.” Victoria Moore, The Telegraph

The wine we offer today is Thierry Pillot Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2016, 100% chardonnay and here's what the world's top Burgundy wine scribe had to say:

“Outstanding. Top Value. A fresh and distinctly cool nose features notes of apple, pear and a whiff of citrus. There is excellent mid-palate density to the round, succulent and delicious flavors that terminate in an agreeably dry and crisp finish where a hint of bitter lemon arises. A quality Bourgogne that would make a great choice for a house white.”  Allen Meadows, Burghound issue 71

“Characterful, elegantly textural and mouthwateringly incisive, these are superb white Burgundies, and to my mind, Pillot is one of a handful of exciting producers who win Chassagne-Montrachet the title of Burgundy's most interesting white wine producing village today. That he stills flies somewhat under the radar—at least relative to the quality to be found here—is perplexing. What's more, that's bound to change, and sooner rather than later, so readers shouldn't hesitate to buy whatever bottles they can find.” William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
