Domaine Borgeot Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru 'Morgeot' 2018
Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru ‘Morgeot’ is a big vineyard made up of lots of sub-divisions. Much of it is more apt for Pinot Noir than Chardonnay, but that’s another story. But the parts that are good for Chardonnay are really, really good. And a proper Morgeot like this one from the Borgeots has weight, power and depth. It is dense, intense; verging on spicy with a silky finish. One of the great white Burgundies.
Domaine Borgeot Chassagne-Montrachet 'Vieilles Vignes' 2018
The Domaine Borgeot makes one of the purest and most consistent styles in Chassagne-Montrachet today. This village Chassagne comes from 50 year old vines, and it's fat. But by no means flabby. With orange flower richness and dusty minerality and good acidity to hold it all in suspension, this wine (as is often the case with Borgeot wines) drinks way above its appellation. There is a spiciness that almost reminds you of muscat, but the structure says Borgeot.
Domaine Borgeot Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru 'Chenevottes' 2018
The Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru 'Chenevottes', located east of the village and not far from grand cru Montrachet, is a complex vineyard, made up of light soils that are easy to cultivate on a mild slope with good exposure. What you get is a wine that is extremely bright with citric acidity and floral aromas that are finely chiseled, and with a concentration that finishes long and intense.
Note: These wines are sourced from small producers, and so quantities are very limited. If ever we run out of a particular wine, we will substitute a wine of equal or greater value.
