Philippe Chatillon - Hari Om 2020
A pretty Pinot Noir all in lace. No weedkiller, no chemical products, only the pickax caresses the vine. Lots of sweat, love, and passion. This wine is the result of a living alchemy. Energizing wine revealing your senses, nature, without adding sulfites or others.
Chatillon founded his own domaine in 2013. The vineyards are located around the village of Arbois in Mesnay, matched by others is Passenans and Puits Saint Pierre in Chateau Chalon. The plantings are mainly on the Lieu-dit of ¨Les Nouvelles¨. He now oversees no more than 2 ha over 3 terroirs. Understood, thoughtfully chosen and brimming with quality.
Philippe demonstrates a devotion to winemaking ,handling every step of the process himself. The works in the vines is reflected in the cellar, it is incredibly tedious and passionate but he manages to make it look as if he were painting a picture rather than labouring.
