Chassagne-Montrachet is one of the five villages of the Côte de Blancs. Premier Cru vineyards face east and southeast, and the Chardonnay grapes are grown in soils of brown clay and limestone. Morgeot is among the top handful of Premier Cru vineyards in the commune; Clos de la Chapelle is an enclosed monopole on the site of an old chapel. The Chardonnay grapes are fermented in oak barrels, and then the wine is barrel matured for 12 to 15 months.
This beautifully balanced wine has concentrated aromas of honey, white fruit and flowers. Full-bodied, rich and powerful, this wine will develop in the bottle for 10 to 15 years.
Serve with rich appetizers including foie gras, or fish or shellfish in cream sauce.
