Light golden color with intense and elegant aromas. Hawthorn, apricot notes, evolve toward 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.
92 Points-The Wine Advocate “The Drouhin 2007 Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot Marquis de Laguiche is the first rendition of this well-known bottling to indicate its vineyard of origin (granted that “Morgeot” actually functions more as a collective vineyard) on the label, with “1er Cru,” as before, in minuscule letters. Smoked meat, musk, pepper, and ocean spray notes in the nose remind one of the ways in which Cote d’Or Chardonnay can resemble Pinot. A correspondingly meaty sense of substantiality and broth-like sense or richness follow on the palate, albeit with sappy ripe white peach and tart hints of red berries rising to prominence as well. (This wine's strong senses of amplitude and ripeness, incidentally, are scarcely traceable to its alcohol, which is only 13.3%.) This finishes with forceful grip, its lush fruit and texture off set by prominent salinity, peppery pungency, and carnal depth. I would anticipate it being worth following from at least 6-7 years.”
91 Points-Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar “Pale, bright yellow. Lovely lift to the aromas of white peach, flowers, spices and white pepper. A step up in texture and concentration from the village offerings, with lovely intensity and focus to the flavors of peach, flowers and spices. A harmonious fruit-driven midweight with an echoing aftertaste.”
90 Points-The Wine Spectator “A ripe, open style, offering peach, melon and stone flavors, and just a hint of oyster shell. Seems easy, yet the flavors build nicely, with a saline, mineral undercurrent. Best from 2011 through 2020.”
