Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Morgeot"


Côte de Beaune


AOC Premier Cru

Grape variety


Located in the southern part of the Côte de Beaune, the Chassagne-Montrachet appellation, along with Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet, is part of the prestigious Côte des Blancs and is one of the treasures of Burgundy's viticultural heritage.
The Morgeot Premier Cru is composed of several Climats, neighbours of the Morgeot abbey, south of the village. In the Middle Ages, this land belonged to the Maizières abbey, whose monks had cleared it in order to plant vines and build a winery and cellar.
It is sometimes said that "Morgeot" is to the Côte de Beaune what "Clos de Vougeot" is to the Côte de Nuits. Another detail that makes this Climat unique is that it is planted with Chardonnay (white wines) and Pinot Noir (red wines).


The elegant nose combines scents of green tea and citrus fruit with mineral nuances that will evolve over time toward notes of dried fruit and exotic spices. Very intense on the palate, with full body and bold structure that is underpinned by tannins that give balance to the overall impression. Remarkably flavourful length.
