Winemaker Notes

The Chassagne Montrachet 1er cru "Abbaye de Morgeot" is a very well balanced wine, full bodied, powerful and rich. Its develops aromas of white fruits flesh as well as white flowers and honey.

Pairs well with foie gras, fish in cream sauces, shellfish and white meats in rich sauces.

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Candied lemon, honey, floral, spice and mineral notes are embedded in the svelte structure of this white. Turns leaner and more austere on the finish, yet the spice and stone elements linger. Gains richness with air. Best from 2017 through 2024.
BH 92
Burghound.com
There is a whisper of oak sitting atop the admirably pure nose that exhibits notes of petrol, pear, mandarin orange and an interesting crushed herb character. Here too there is impressive richness to the full-bodied and mouth coating flavors that finish notably drier than those of the Clos de la Chapelle, indeed there is even a touch of austerity present and not quite the same depth either though this may change in time. Barrel Sample: 89-92 Points
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Abbaye de Morgeot was showing some reduction on the nose when I tasted the sample from barrel. The palate is nicely balanced with fresh dewy green apple, a touch of quince and spice lining the finish. It then flows toward a crisp and focused orange rind finish. Nothing extraordinary here, just a well-crafted Chassagne-Montrachet to enjoy over the next 15-20 years.
Range: 89-91

Chassagne-Montrachet

View all wine

A Côte de Beaune village most famous for its beautifully textured and powerful whites, Chassagne-Montrachet reaches farthest south in the Côte d’Or, save for the village of Santenay. It has three Grands Crus vineyards: Le Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet and Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet. Le Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet overlap with and are (confusingly) shared with the village of Puligny-Montrachet. But Chassagne-Montrachet bears sole ownership of the Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru.

The beauty doesn’t stop there as the village has a great many outstanding Premiers Crus wines and village level wines. Most famous Premiers Crus vineyards include Les Chenevottes, Clos de la Maltroie, En Cailleret and Les Ruchottes. Also, village level wines offer many lovely examples of what Chassagne-Montrachet has to offer, but at more approachable price points and perhaps less demand of waiting.

The best sites in Chassagne-Montrachet have complex soils of sedimentary rock and limestone (with less marl). Whites, which are by law composed of 100% Chardonnay (as in all classified white Burgundy from Côte d’Or), have steely power, bright and concentrated citrus, stone or tropical fruit characteristics and attractive textures ranging from plush to tactile, grippy and mineral-driven.

There is some fine Pinot noir produced from the village. These wines tend to be high-toned and earthy, with wild herb aromas and suave tannins.

Chardonnay

View all wine

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While practically every country in the wine producing world grows it, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. As far as cellar potential, white Burgundy rivals the world’s other age-worthy whites like Riesling or botrytized Semillon. California is Chardonnay’s second most important home, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia and South America are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

In the Glass

When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay flavors tend towards grapefruit, lemon zest, green apple, celery leaf and wet flint, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of melon, peach and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut and spice, while malolactic fermentation imparts a soft and creamy texture.

Perfect Pairings

Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with flaky white fish with herbs, scallops, turkey breast and soft cheeses. Richer Chardonnays marry well with lobster, crab, salmon, roasted chicken and creamy sauces.

Sommelier Secret

Since the 1990s, big, oaky, buttery Chardonnays from California have enjoyed explosive popularity. More recently, the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards a clean, crisp style that rarely utilizes new oak. In Burgundy, the subregion of Chablis, while typically employing the use of older oak barrels, produces a similar bright and acid-driven style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy its lighter style.
