A very attractive, complex nose with a bright array of lemons and white peaches, as well as flinty and stony nuances. The palate delivers weight and freshness. Really attractive and lithe with a vibrant array of limes and young nectarines at the finish. Drink or hold. Rating: 94 Nick Stock, www.jamessuckling.com (Feb 2019)

Tasted with Véronique Drouhin at her London presentation of the vintage. This has good pure lines again. A nice clean scrub of pithy restraint and lovely fresh chalky minerality. The fruit has a waxier feel, with essence of lemon skin and then a riper, sweet line of juice in the middle. Still well-furled but you can sense the good, soft flesh just waiting below the surface. Good intensity. Drinking range: 2020 - 2026L&S(Nov 2018)

The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Marquis de Laguiche wafts from the glass with a lovely bouquet of pretty orchard fruit, pastry cream, dried white flowers, honeycomb and a nutty framing of new wood. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, pure and satiny, with good depth and concentration at the core, tangy balancing acids and a beautifully defined finish. This is dependably among the finest whites in the Drouhin cellar, and this year's rendition is no exception. Rating: 92-94 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate(Jan 2019)

The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot 1er Cru (Marquis de Laguiche) has a wonderful, vivacious bouquet of citrus fruit infused with yellow flowers and grilled walnut, actually quite Meursault-like in style. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, touches of walnut and lemon peel, well-integrated oak and real precision and mineralité toward the finish. Excellent. Drinking range: 2021 - 2036 Rating: 91-93 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com(Jan 2019)

Joseph Drouhin

Despite the size of their vineyard holding, not all 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.
