Vintages Wine Panel: Like the grands crus, the premier cru vineyards of Chassagne-Montrachet sit on a southeast-facing ridge, but at a higher elevation and on a less pronounced slope. Morgeot produces whites that are fatter and richer than many other premier crus, and with fewer mineral notes. My note: Subtle but gorgeous. Balance personalified (bottled?). A vibrant white filled with ripe pears, minerality and smoke.

Pinot Noir food pairings: roasted salmon, cream sauces.
