Morgeot is a Premier Cru vineyard in the village of Chassagne-Montrachet in the Côte de Beaune of Burgundy. Althought Chassagne-Montrachet is better known for white wine (75% of the vineyards there are planted to Chardonnay), the hamlet of Morgeot has been planted to Pinot Noir for hundreds of years, and has made a name for itself as a red wine vineyard. Morgeot is known for producing elegant reds with dark fruit, structure and ageability.
The Morgeot vineyard is situated on the southern edge of Chassange-Montrachet and lies in a cluster of the commune’s prime vineyard sites. The location allows the vines to benefit from well-drained, mid-slope, limestone-rich soils and a south-east-facing orientation, which helps them to fully utilize the morning and early afternoon sunlight.
This wine exhibits dark
red fruits – black cherry, rhubarb, and cola, with plenty of depth and
structure.. A French Pinot Noir with enough weight to satisfy, while still
being lithe and supple.
