Chassagne-Montrachet “Morgeot” benefits from clay and limestone-rich soils and a south-easterly exposure in the Côte de Beaune, resulting in a complex and full-bodied Pinot Noir with long aging potential. First planted in the 15th century, this Premier Cru – one of the 55 in the appellation – shares its renowned terroir between Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
Varietal: Pinot noir
Beautiful and concentrated
Structured to age over time, Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru “Morgeot” 2017 shows high-intensity aromas of ripe cherries along with notes of cinnamon, vanilla, and cured meat. On the palate, oak is well integrated, while the tannins are smooth and silky. It is a beautiful and concentrated wine with a long finish, that will reach its apogee in a few years time.
A generous year
2017 began the best possible way, with a sunny and warm spring and no threats of hail or frost. Bud break happened at the beginning of April, soon followed by blooming. Summer was marked by scorching episodes, pushing maturation forward. Harvest started over the last days of August, two weeks earlier than usual, and lasted until mid-September. With healthy, ripe grapes and yields back to normal, 2017 has since proven its high-quality and long-lasting potential.
