Domaine Jean-Marc Pillot

Domaine Jean-Marc Pillot

History of Domaine 

Representing the fifth generation to produce wine on the 6 hectare family domaine, Jean-Marc came to work with his father, Jean, in 1985. Motivated by the same pride in their wines and love of their job, they succeeded in creating a fine reputation even among the most demanding connoisseurs. 

In 1991, Jean-Marc and his sister, Beatrice, took over from Jean. Their ambition was to perpetuate the family tradition based on the same uncompromising standards. They went from strength to strength, expanding their vineyard holdings to 11 hectares. 

One of the unusual characteristics of the domaine is the even distribution between Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines. 

Although Chassagne-Montrachet's white wines are famous worldwide, one must not overlook the appellation's red wines, among the best in the Côte de Beaune. 

The domaine produces nearly 60,000 bottles a year. 

Vineyard Practices and Winemaking Technique

Jean-Marc's number one priority is to respect the terroir he has inherited. The soil is ploughed all year long. Organic fertilisers are adapted to the needs of each vine and the specific nature of each plot. 

Sustainable methods are used to fight against fungal diseases with maximum respect for the vines and their environment. 

Jean-Marc lavishes great care and attention on his vines: March pruning, removing side shoots, training, laf thinning, green harvesting, and manual picking account for quality grapes that are absolutely essential for making great wine.
