Joseph Drouhin Chassagne Montrachet Morgeot Marquis de Laguiche 2015
This historic, world renowned and sought-after vineyard site is located south of the Côte de Beaune, not too far from the city of Beaune in the village of Chassagne-Montrachet. Along withMeursault and Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne is one of the famous villages of the "Côte des Blancs" producing great white wines. The Morgeot vineyard is situated on a gradual slope, and on the mid-slope you will find the ancient building, Abbey of Morgeot. Throughout history, the abbey had two owners: men of prayer and men of the sword: monks from the abbey and the Laguiche family. During the French Revolution, the abbey was ruined but the estate of the Laguiche family was spared and remains to this day.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Marquis de Laguiche has a tightly-wound, oyster-shell tinged bouquet that seemed a little timid following the 2015 Beaune Clos des Mouches Blanc. The palate is very well balanced with a touch of praline on the entry, quite tensile with an edgy, fresh lime and sliced pear note on the finish. This is showing good potential and the aromatics will have awoken by the time it is bottle.
