This is a wonderful occasion to savour a great wine. Admirable light golden colour. 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!

Wine EnthusiastThe vineyards of the Marquis de Laguiche date back to before the French Revolution, and Drouhin is fully responsible for producing the wines since the 1940s. This ripe, opulent selection lives up to its illustrious pedigree. It is full bodied, and it offers vibrant acidity and minerality. It's a wine for aging over eight years and many more.

International Wine CellarHighly nuanced nose combines fresh peach, pear, brown spices, curry powder and white flowers. Rich, thick and dense; fruitier than the Clos des Mouches but complicated by salty minerality. Really dusts the palate on the tactile, solid, subtly sweet back end. Boasts near-grand cru texture. 92-94

Wine AdvocateThe terrific 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot Marquis de Laguiche is beautifully balanced from start to finish. It comes across as more reserved than the Folatieres, with enough acidity and overall structure to frame the fruit. As always, this is a big, broad-shouldered white that needs time in bottle to settle down. Veins of brisk, saline minerality frame the finish. This is all finesse and class. Incidentally, a recent bottle of the 2002 was fabulous. Anticipated maturity: 2014+.
