Joseph Drouhin Chassagne Montrachet Morgeot Marquis de Laguiche Premier Cru 2015
Admirable light golden color. Intense and elegant aromas come to the fore : hawthorn, apricot notes, evolving towards hints of blond tobacco. As the wine ages, there are nuances of dried fruit and rare spices. A silky texture and a subtle touch of tannin give a true personality to the wine. Remarkable aftertaste. A great white Burgundy!". Veronica Boss-Drouhin
James SucklingLove the density to this with dried-apple, pear and stone character. Full-bodied, layered and beautiful. Very exciting.
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.
VinousPale, bright yellow. Classic scents of pear, menthol, mint and dusty stone. Juicy, intense, very youthful wine with dusty, savory minerality currently dominating its soft citrus and white peach flavors. Still a bit tart and disjointed on the back end, and quite closed in the context of this collection. This wine was racked last December and bottled in late February, like Drouhin's Clos des Mouches and Montrachet.
