This is also sufficiently reduced as to render a proper assessment of the nose impossible. The palate impression of the delicious and round full-bodied flavors is one of elevated ripeness along with plenty of sappy dry extract that buffers the citrusy if slightly less complex finale. This too should drink well relatively early on.
Colin-Morey has a métayage arrangement on this 13-year-old vineyard, which was recently purchased by American wine collector Wilf Jaeger, who is also a part-owner of RN74 in San Francisco): Bright, light yellow. Aromas of mirabelle and honey are less precise than those of the Chenevottes. Yellow fruit flavors come across as classically dry, with sound supporting acidity, but the finish shows a slight phenolic edge and a hint of warmth in the early going. Colin-Morey did a green harvest here, ultimately making about 47 hectoliters per hectare. (ST)
The 2014 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Abbaye de Morgeot is a new offering from Pierre-Yves from a 0.5-hectare parcel of 15-year-old vines. It has a reserved, nutmeg and grilled almond-scented nose that just needs to develop a little more intensity. The palate is clean and tensile on the entry, with a hint of sour lemon mixed with rosewater and peach; it is delicate and charming, nothing overly complex here (perhaps due to the relatively younger vines), but there is impressive persistence on the finish.
