The Story

Chassagne-Montrachet is a commune of about 2.5 square miles that, along with Puligny-Montrachet, contains much of the world's best white wine land. Those wines are separately classified under the 5 Montrachet Grands Crus, but wines labeled Chassagne-Montrachet can also be world-class. As well as possessing a share of Bâtard-Montrachet and Montrachet (wines from the Chassagne side of Montrachet are known as Le Montrachet), Chassagne-Montrachet also fully encompasses the small Grand Cru of Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet.

Morgeot: A vineyard perhaps even more common than Les Caillerets. The size of the vineyard and the amount of wine produced does not, however, vary inversely with quality, as Morgeot also has to be one of the leading Premier Cru vineyards of Chassagne-Montrachet and therefore the Côte de Beaune. In general the standard is fairly reliable, although even some leading domaines don't measure up with their Morgeot offering. Unlike Les Caillerets, even among leading wines the general style varies greatly. The great Morgeots, all of which should be more expensive than the average Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru but not by much, come from 6 domaines. Bruno Colin's is rich but with a dry intensity and mineral flavor that can make aging beneficial to the wine. The more citrussy, lemony, acidic Fontaine-Gagnard is also good. Both Girardin and Jadot make great "Abbaye de Morgeot" from old vines, and Jadot's Clos de Chapelle Domaine du Duc de Magenta is also good in its fruity-rich but nonetheless complex style. Thomas Morey's example also combines complexity with elegance in a pleasing way. The more spicy, exotic, but also fruit-forward Ramonet wines are also leaders.
