"We continue to advocate the consistent ingredient for great wine starts with the producer. And producer is no more important than in the region of Burgundy. Just as a chef requires a knife and quality ingredients, so must the skill and passion of the chef exude itself in the product. So too must the winemaker be able to bring together the elements of their vision using terroir, cellar work, and a vision of balance. 

Our main character is Thierry Pillot of Domaine Paul Pillot located in Chassagne Montrachet. It is vital to know the background of this family. Now, in their fourth generation, each new period has brought a welcome change to the domain. In 1900, Jean-Baptiste Pillot became the ground breaker for the domain. Originally a barrel maker, he decided to pursue full-time work in his vineyards. The family barrel cooperage proved more than vital to the family down the road. The second generation brought with it two brothers who began bottling their own wine instead of selling off the fruit. Paul Pillot, the very person who became the namesake of the winery, increased the domain’s holdings further with several Premier Cru vineyards in Chassagne-Montrachet, as well as another Premier Cru holding in St-Aubin. All the vineyards are centralized in the Cote de Beaune." -Winery notes
