The lovely, complex bouquet is the first hint that you’re in for a treat. Pear, mandarin orange and white flowers lean towards baking spice and toast. The palate is satiny and succulent, matching weight with freshness in a completely harmonious expression of the vintage. The wine advocate calls it “one of the highlights of the range.”

Honey blossom, citrus and cooked pears, but ever so subtle on the nose. Full-bodied and layered with lovely fruit, light yogurt and pie crust at the end. Really appreciate the flavor and complexity at the end here.

Wine Spectator

The vibrant character shines through, along with flavors of butterscotch, peach, vanilla and almond croissant. Lean and focused, with toasty oak and a tactile finish that picks up a mineral element. (

Vinous

The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot 1er Cru (Marquis de Laguiche) comes from a vineyard that tends to produce millerandé berries. This has an intense, powerful bouquet with hints of menthol permeating the citrus fruit, developing a more fumé style with time in the glass. The palate is well balanced with hints of passion fruit and peach on the entry, becoming spicier and subtly Muscat-like toward the very satisfying, persistent finish. Excellent.
