The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Champs Gain displays a pretty bouquet of yellow apple, white flowers, pastry cream and beeswax. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny but incisive, with chalky extract, tangy acids and a long, beautifully delineated finish.

As winemakers, the Pillot family dates back into the 1880s. Jean Baptiste Pillot, who was born in 1858 in Chassagne-Montrachet, cultivated a few vineyards towards the end of that century. After World War I ended, his two sons (Henri and Alphonse) starting running the estate, and acquired even more vineyards. Henri’s son Paul took over the reins in his early 20s and is credited with increasing holdings and buying more vineyards, including Caillerets and Grandes Ruchottes.
