‘Noyers Bret’ represents the sole Pillot holding in Puligny, and the elegance and finesse one expects from great Puligny is clearly evident in this wine. Sourced from a tiny 0.47 hectare parcel, 2014 was particularly exceptional for this cuvée. Drinking beautifully now with notes of hibiscus, orchard fruits, lemon curd, and chalky minerals. Forget it for just a few years, though, and you’ll be glad you did.
Jean-Marc Pillot is a rising star in Burgundy whose wines have a degree of understated elegance. They are delicious to drink young, yet have a track record for aging that is seriously impressive. Oak usage is moderate, and the diversity of terroir at this estate are allowed to shine through.
