Located in central Burgundy, in the southern part of the Côte de Beaune, the vines for this Premier Cru grow on the slope to the south of the village of Chassagne-Montrachet.
SoilMorgeot’s terroir is comprised of several plots that surround the abbey of Morgeot, just south of the village. The slopes face east/southeast and the soil is composed of clay and marl overlying hard Jurassic limestone, which lends this wine its lovely minerality.
Grape variety100 % Pinot Noir.
VinificationTraditional Burgundian vinification in open vats with long maceration and punching of the cap. Aged in oak barrels (25 to 30% new oak) for 14 to 16 months to lend structure and complexity to the wine.
RobeBeautiful, brilliant, intense ruby red in colour.
NoseEvocative of aromas of ripe red fruit such as cherry and crushed strawberry with subtle oaky nuances.
PalateA silky, unctuous wine that is bursting with red fruit flavours and features a touch of brininess on the finish.
Serve withTry this wine with red meat, poultry and game as well as with mild cheeses such as Brie or Pont-l’Evêque. It would go marvellously with a filet of venison with cranberries, duck breast with apricots or quail with grapes.
