Lovely rich, soft nose. Rich and round in the mouth, a classy, super-pure Morgeot with real depth and 'luxe'. Peachy and pears.

Richly floral and delicate at the same time and it has a floaty quality on the palate too, giving it volume with lightness. The fragrant fruit is undercut with lively acidity which skims through the wine. An elegant profile with a scented finish. A delight. Fine+. From 2015/16

One son owns this, Georges. 2 ha. Open and friendly and with lots of lively but very ripe fruit. Dense. So clean and fruity! Neat and pleasing. 2014-2022

An expressive Morgeot with ripe nectarines and apricots with a lovely, long length. Minerals and firm structure in the background provide lift and balance. Wonderful energy and focused precision. 2014-2022

The 2011 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Marquis De Laguiche is quite subtle in this vintage. Floral notes meld into pear and white peach notes. The 2011 lacks some of the overtness that is typical of this wine, but in exchange, readers will find a supple, inviting Morgeot that will drink well with minimum cellaring.

Despite the size of their vineyard holding, not all of Drouhin's wines come from their own domaine, but most of the other wines do come from long-term contracts, such as exists with the Marquis de Laguiche wines. In all but name these wines are 'Domaine' wines, and the vineyards are cared for and the wines vinified with exactly the same care.
