Love the density to this with dried-apple, pear and stone character. Full-bodied, layered and beautiful. Very exciting.
The 2015 Chassagne “Morgeot” from the Laguiche holdings is an absolutely stunning wine, with more cut, grip and backend sizzle than most of the other premier crus in the Drouhin stables this year. The gorgeous bouquet soars from the glass in a vibrant blend of apple, pear, a touch of fresh almond, lemon blossoms, chalky soil tones, hint of the crème patissière to come and a deft base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and zesty, with an excellent core, great focus and grip and lovely backend energy on the long and laser-like finish. Great juice!

Pale, bright yellow. Classic scents of pear, menthol, mint and dusty stone. Juicy, intense, very youthful wine with dusty, savory minerality currently dominating its soft citrus and white peach flavors. Still a bit tart and disjointed on the back end, and quite closed in the context of this collection. This wine was racked last December and bottled in late February, like Drouhin's Clos des Mouches and Montrachet. (ST)
Moderate reduction is enough to push the underlying fruit to the background today. Otherwise there is excellent size, weight and mid-palate concentration to the solidly powerful flavors that coat the palate on the sappy finish. Like the Embazées, this is not particularly refined but it does offer very good complexity and sneaky good length.
