'The Pillot family have been growing grapes in Chassagne-Montrachet since the 19th century. Laurent, who has been in charge of the domaine for many years, is the 5th generation. Today, the domaine comprises nearly 15 hectares and covers over 22 different appellations. Laurent has now been joined by his young son, Adrien, who is full of great ideas - having worked in South Africa (Hamilton-Russell), New Zealand, Oregon and Australia - including longer élevages for some of the white wines. Laurent and Adrien strongly believe in low yields and a strict form of viticulture, which Laurent describes as being “80% organic”. Any necessary treatments are kept to the very minimum possible. All his white wines are vinified in barrique and are characterised by purity, 1er Cru Champgains is from heavier soils and is rounder and more accessible.'
