Since the 19th Century, generations of the Pillot family have cultivated the hills of Chassagne-Montrachet on over 35 acres of land spread across 22 different appellations. The vineyards are mainly concentrated on Chassagne-Montrachet and Pommard terroirs, but also on the soils of Santeany, Saint-Aubin, Puligny-Montrachet, Meursault, Volnay, and Beaune. The father-and-son team of Fernand and Laurent focuses tirelessly on maintaining quality with their practices: low yields, minimal use of fertilizer and strict hygiene. All of their wines are vinified and matured in a modern winery but Laurent pays special attention to keep with traditional Burgundy practices: barrel fermentation for the whites, minimal stirring of the lees, and ageing the wines in French oak barrels from a variety of forests and coopers. The vineyards are worked “agrobiologie” with care taken to see that soils are cultivated without the use of chemical weed-killers. The family is also a member of the research group DEPHY-EcoPhyto since 2012, which aims to decrease the amount of pesticides used and to better agricultural techniques for an environmentally sound ecosystem.

Winemaking: The vines grow on dense clay and limestone soils with significant stony limestone deposits, that are located at 750 feet above sea level. Pillot’s Morgeot vines are in the lieu-dit of Fairendes, the uppermost slopes of Morgeot adjacent to 1ers Crus Caillerets and Champgains. Grapes are hand-harvested and carried to the winery where they undergo alcoholic fermentation in oak barrels (40% new) for a period of two months. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 11–12 months.

Region/Country: Burgundy, France

Tasting Note: An aromatic wine which tastes of white fruits and oranges framed by well-integrated oak and a very generous and powerful mouthfeel. This wine is an excellent match with grilled white meat, fresh water fish and scallops.

皮洛特酒莊(Domaine Fernand et Laurent Pillot)位於法國勃艮第(Burgundy)伯恩丘(Cote de Beaune)產區的夏山-蒙哈榭(Chassagne-Montrachet)產酒村,是該產酒村內一座家族式精品酒莊。

在葡萄酒釀造方面,皮洛特酒莊一直堅持傳統釀酒工藝和現代釀酒釀酒技術相結合。為此,酒莊為釀酒廠配備了眾多現代化的設備,以更好的利用現代化的設備釀造出更為優質的葡萄酒。同時,皮洛特酒莊所有的葡萄都是經由人工採摘並挑選後被快速地運回至釀酒廠。一般情況下,紅葡萄在酒精發酵前,會被放入木桶中進行一段時間的低溫浸漬,而在發酵的過程中,酒莊會安排人工進行週期性的壓酒帽和淋皮,以更好的萃取單寧、色素和風味物質。完成發酵的紅葡萄酒又會被置入20%-50%新的橡木桶中熟化,約10-19個月後,完成熟化的紅葡萄酒便會直接在酒莊內進行裝瓶。在釀造白葡萄酒時,白葡萄一般會被置入25%-50%新的橡木桶進行酒精發酵和蘋果酸乳酸發酵。完成發酵的白葡萄酒在裝瓶之前一般會被放入橡木桶中熟成8-12個月。

目前,皮洛特酒莊出產的酒款主要有黑皮諾(Pinot Noir)、霞多麗(Chardonnary)和阿里高特(Aligote),包括來自玻瑪、夏山-蒙哈榭、沃爾奈( Volnay)、默爾索(Meursault)、桑特奈(Santenay)等產酒村的酒款。這些葡萄酒凝聚了皮洛特酒莊的心血,品質卓著,深受國內外消費者和酒評家的認可。
