Winemaker Notes

Pale yellow in color, this wine has a nose of mirabelle and honey. It reveals a great freshness with almonds aromas and tension through the finish.

Pair with shellfish, fish, foie gras and goats cheese.

Wine Enthusiast
Conveying a sense of richness, this is a smooth and creamy wine with a tannic structure that emerges out of the ripe apple and pear flavors. Acidity at the end is already well integrated into the crisp texture with its touch of orange zest and minerality. Drink from 2018.
JS 92
James Suckling
A wine with dried apple, honey, lemon and hints of minerals. Medium to full body, bright acidity and a mineral, cedar character.

COMMENTARY: Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot 1er Cru has been one of my favorite Premier Crus in Burgundy. The 2013 Louis Latour is a well-made effort. TASTING NOTES: This wine deftly combines Old World nuances with a New World presence. Pair its aromas and flavors of savory spices and ripe apples with a veal roast stuffed with wild mushrooms. (Tasted: October 21, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Spectator
Slim and elegant, this white offers lemon candy, floral, honey and vanilla aromas and flavors. Fluid and open, with a lingering finish of mineral and spice.

This was bottled the day before my visit and not surprisingly was still showing notes of post-bottling sulfur though not so much as to completely mask the ripe and mildly exotic yellow orchard fruit. There is excellent volume to the broad-shouldered and muscular flavors that possess very good mid-palate concentration before concluding in a lingering and mouth coating finale. This is not a wine of finesse but then again Morgeot rarely is.

Louis Latour Winery Video

Maison Louis Latour is one of the most highly-respected négociant-éléveurs in Burgundy. Maison Louis Latour is the producer of some of the finest Burgundian wines but has also pioneered the production of fine wines from outside of the confines of Burgundy. These wines from the Ardèche and the Côteaux de Verdon are slowly gaining esteem for their unmatchable quality outside of Burgundy.

All of the grapes from the vineyards owned by the Latour family are vinified and aged in the attractive cuverie of Chateau Corton Grancey in Aloxe-Corton. The winery was the first purpose-built cuverie in France and remains the oldest still-functioning. A unique railway system with elevators allows the entire wine-making process to be achieved by the use of gravity. This eliminates the threat of oxidation from unnecessary pumping of the must. Since 1985, Louis Latour has been selling the wines of its own vineyards under the name Domaine Louis Latour.

Louis Latour has been a leader in the environmentally responsible winemaking for over 15 years. Louis Latour has had ISO 14001 accreditation for Environmental Management Systems since 2003 and has been a member of the European association FARRE since 1998- a group of like-minded companies who seek to develop and promote sustainable methods of agriculture.

Chassagne-Montrachet Wine

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

View all products

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.

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 it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
