This also displays a discreet hint of exoticism on the nose yet here the aromas are slightly cooler and airier with a pretty mix of both white and yellow orchard fruit, green tea, lemon zest and the same wet stone nuances. There is a succulent mouth feel to the borderline lush flavors that are saved from heaviness by racy acidity that imparts a real sense of energy to the naturally sweet finish where a touch of wood surfaces. This should also drink well young and will probably bebetter young than old as this risks becoming heavy with age. Tasted: Jun 11, 2013. Drink: 2016+

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Chassagne-Montrachet les Grandes Ruchottes 2011 from Paul Pillot has quite a lot of reduction on the nose, but there appears to be good fruit concentration and delineation here. The palate is chalky on the entry with bitter lemon and grapefruit notes. It tapers away during the finish so that you end up feeling a little short-changed. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014
