This is a beautiful occasion to savour a great wine—admirable light golden colour. Intense and elegant aromas come to the fore. Hawthorn, and apricot notes, evolve toward hints of blond tobacco. As the wine ages, there are nuances of dried fruit and rare spices. A silky texture and a subtle touch of tannin give a true personality to the wine. Great aftertaste. A great white Burgundy!
Due to the refinement of their bouquet and the elegance of their flavours, these great white wines are unquestionably destined to accompany haute cuisine: shellfish cooked in a light wine sauce (court-bouillon) or any delicate fish (such as Dover sole) prepared grilled or poached.

A rich and powerful Chassagne-Montrachet with serious concentration and creaminess, but thanks to the acidity and the fine tannins, this remains poised through the long and very sensual finish.

The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Marquis de Laguiche is also very promising, wafting from the glass with aromas of pear, mandarin orange, white flowers, warm bread and baking spices. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and concentrated, with a deep and layered core, lively acids and a seamless, harmonious profile, it's one of the range's highlights.

There is a lovely balance of ripe apple and lemon peel of great purity on the nose and on the palate an exquisite balance between freshness and rich extract, leading to a rewardingly lingering finish. It was produced from the 2.26ha holdings of the Marquis de Laguiche, using a selection of the best four parcels in this vintage.

Domaine fruit, grown in Les Languettes, still in barrel, sadly just three of them. A little touch of coconut from the barrel and with a suggestion of intensity on the nose. Very considerable intensity of fruit on the palate, as if they had concentrated the flavour of all six barrels they normally make in just three. Very intense.
