Domaine Bernard Moreau Chassagne Montrachet Morgeot 2016

SKU 11396


50% of the domaine's Morgeot comes from Le Carduse, which has very rocky soil, and 50% comes from Les Fairendes, which has yellow/red soil that is very easy to work. Morgeot vineyard wines are richer, bigger and with more power. The wines age very well. This white wine demonstrates a strong capability for aging.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeots has a more expressive bouquet than the Maltroie, with scents of citrus peel, apple blossom, cold flint and, later, orange pith. I like the energy conveyed by the aromatics. The palate is well balanced with a crisp entry. This builds quickly in the mouth, quite spicy and lively, not persistent like previous vintages but still precise and full of character.
