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 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.
