CHASSAGNE-MONTRACHET

PREMIER CRU: MORGEOT

The Morgeot climat totals 143 acres, bigger even than Clos Vougeot, and the largest premier cru of the vine- growing côte. It comprises 21 named plots, each of which can figure on the label under its own name or under the general Morgeot appellation.

History

Our firm’s Morgeot derives from two named plots: Les Brussonnes and Les Fairendes. The first of these was planted in 1986 and is a recent acquisition which first was included in our cuvée of Morgeot in 2005. Half of the vines in Les Fairendes were planted in 1964 and the remainder in 1974. This property has been in our family for a long time and was owned by my great-grandfather at the beginning of the last century.

Terroir

Les Brussonnes is on a slight slope, the soil porous, shallow and with small stones overlying bedrock. Les Fairendes lies above La Boudriotte on deeper soil where rocks break the surface. Up-slope, the stony red soil is shallow but gets deeper lower down the slope where the soil is white, heavy, compacted, and clayey.

Tasting

This handsome portion of the Morgeot appellation produces excellent white wines - meaty, opulent, rich, unctuous, and less mineral than those from Ruchottes or Caillerets. These wines have real complexity. They are rich and well-balanced and need at least 5 to 7 years to reach their peak.
