In 1973, René Lamy and Thérèse Pillot, both born into real wine-growing families, married and started their domain in the Hameau de Morgeot on the edge of Chassagne-Montrachet. The PILLOT family traces its origins back to the municipality of Chassagne-Montrachet in 1595. The Lamy-Pillot winery is a family estate that operates on 20 hectares of vineyards, spread over 27 different appellations, mainly located in Chassagne-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin. Today the domain is owned by daughters Florence and Karine and their husbands. Florence and her husband Sebastien Caillat are now responsible for the vinification. Florence was educated in Beaune, while Sebastien Caillat was educated in Strasbourg and Dijon. In addition to their training, they both completed many internships, at home and abroad, before taking over the cellar in 1998.

Don't let the Saint-Aubin wine region in the Côte de Beaune be confused with the other 69 villages that bear the same name throughout France. "Saint Aubin" is the name of a 6th century bishop who was known for his generosity toward the sick, widows and orphans, and who reportedly performed miracles both during his life and after his death. Perhaps this is another reason why Burgundian wine is so coveted; it seems to taste of winemaking wonders, both in its youth and long after it begins to age in the bottle.

The Saint-Aubin wine region is flanked by two very famous neighbors, Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet. With 30 Premier Cru vineyards representing 75 percent of production, this region is known for excellent Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines.

The wine style is characterized by a balanced and supportive use of wood. The beautiful terroir with its mineral notes is not drowned out by excessive use of wood, allowing the fruit to be beautifully expressed in all cuvées.
