Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru “Morgeot” — 2021
The Morgeot appellation covers several ‘climats’, neighboring the Abbey of Morgeot. In the Middle Ages, these lands belonged to the Abbey of Maizières, which stripped the area to plant vines and construct the buildings necessary for exploitation.
We could say that Morgeot is to Côte de Beaune which Clos de Vougeot is to Côte de Nuits.

Pale yellow color. A delicate mix of fine floral aromas and woody scents makes the nose complex. The attack is round. On the palate, this wine has a beautiful structure with very satisfactory acidity which counterbalances the sensation of smoothness and fullness from being raised in oak. It is rich and really long-lasting.
