2015 Domaine Louis Jadot (Duc de Magenta) Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Morgeot - Clos de la Chapelle"

SKU #1333666 93 points Decanter

 This part of Morgeot has the capacity to produce more vibrant, vertical wines than much of the rest of this sprawling climat. Notes of yellow stone fruit, ripe citrus, wet rocks and vanilla bean introduce an attractively pure, focussed wine with lovely energy and minerality through the long finish.Drinking Window 2018 - 2035.(WK)  (12/2016)

93 points Vinous

 Sexy if reticent nose combines lemon, lime, grapefruit, mirabelle and smoky minerality. Lovely rich, spicy, floral wine with terrific intensity and exhilarating sweetness. Harmonious acidity gives this premier cru excellent balance and definition from the start. Finishes brisk, precise and very long, with an old-vines concentration. Jadot made about 40 barrels of this wine, which is close to normal production from its two hectares of vines.(ST)  (9/2017)

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 This is quite aromatically similar to the Abbaye except here there is a noticeable hint of mandarin orange peel. The lush, opulent and lavishly rich big-bodied flavors coat the palate with extract while delivering excellent length on the markedly powerful finale. This is a big but balanced wine and while it's not elegant, it is impressive in its fashion.  (6/2017)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Clos de la Chapelle felt reduced on the nose and was therefore difficult to read. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous opening, less tensile than the 2015 Abbaye de Morgeot, more concentrated and yet showing less delineation. Moderate length in the mouth, this is a Chassagne where I would like to see improvement by the time it is in bottle. The wines under the "Duc de Magenta" label are those owned by the namesake family, but the vineyards are farmed by Louis Jadot under a long-term contract.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Chardonnay

- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
Specific Appellation:

Chassagne Montrachet

- A long, wandering village in the Côte de Beaune. Fortunately, what the workaday village lacks in charm, the wines more than make up for. Most famous for its white wines, which are lovely and delicate, Chassagne-Montrachet actually produces more red than white wine. It is one of the few places in the Côte D'Or where both red and white wines are produced from Premier Cru vineyards. The Grands Crus are Montrachet, Bâtard Montrachet (both shared with the neighboring village of Puligny) and Criots Bâtard Montrachet.
