The 2015 Morgeots from Céline Fontaine is very, very elegant this year. The nose delivers a refined blend of lemon, pear, a touch of beeswax, chalky soil tones, white flower, gentle mintiness and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very suave on the attack, with fine mid-palate depth, racy acids and impressive focus and grip on the long and still fairly primary finish. Another delightful wine in the making, but like the Vergers, it will be better with a couple of years in the cellar. 2018-2035+.
The 2015 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeots has a lovely licorice-tinged bouquet that displays impressive intensity and vigor. The palate is honeyed on the entry with touches of orange zest and dried pineapple, quite harmonious with a vibrant spicy finish that lingers longer in the mouth than its peers. I like the vim and vigor of this premature Chassagne - it bodes well for the future. (NM)
Smoky aromas of pear, apple and white flower nuances lead to succulent, round and solidly concentrated and powerful flavors that terminate in a lingering finish where a hint of bitter lemon appears. Like the Chenevottes, this is not refined but it is delicious and inviting. Drink: 2021+
Bright yellow. Deeply pitched aromas of yellow stone fruits, pineapple, hay and flowers. Supple and rich but with its rather exotic mirabelle and honey flavors cut by harmonious acidity. In a very ripe style. (ST)
