2011 Domaine Louis Jadot (Duc de Magenta) Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Morgeot - Clos de la Chapelle" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1140940 94 points Antonio Galloni

 One of the more intensely mineral Chassagnes in the range, the Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot Clos De La Chapellet is drop-dead gorgeous. Flint, smoke, graphite, tangerine and almond notes all blossom in a Chassagne that is at once powerful yet refined. The flavors are vivid and totally nuanced in this impeccable Morgeot from Jadot.

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2011 Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot 1er Cru Clos de la Chapelle, has a fragrant, well-defined bouquet with honeysuckle and broom. It is very precise, but tightly wound. The palate is well-balanced with fine tannins, very pure and expressive with a lovely thread of acidity lending tension. This is a top-quality Chassagne. Drink 2012-2020.  (8/ 2013)

88-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 (a monopole). This is also notably ripe with aromas of dried yellow orchard fruit and hints of the exotic along with soft floral nuances. There is noticeable wood on the opulent and exceptionally rich and solidly well-concentrated flavors that possess good muscle on the palate coating finish. This is not an elegant wine but it does offer plenty of character.  (9/ 2013)

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.
