2021, Domaine de la Vougeraie, CHASSAGNE-MONTRACHET, 1er Cru, 'Morgeot Clos de la Chapelle', Magnum (1500ml)


The first vintage of this Monopole vineyard purchased from the Duchesse de Magenta! The yield is decent at 33 hl/ha. 20% new wood, made in the same way as the other whites. There is a suggestion of considerable power here and distinction. Kicks on beautifully on the palate, white fruit with a few plums in the background, very good acidity, and persistent. A fine first outing. **** 92-95 Jasper Morris MW.

The 2021 Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot Clos de la Chapelle 1er Cru comes from a 3.5-hectares parcel that necessitated three sorties through the vines due to variegated ripeness. It has an attractive frangipane and hazelnut scented nose that is focused and opens with aeration. The palate is well balanced, not complex yet fresher than, say, the Puligny-Village, with a bit of bite towards the finish. Give this 12 months in bottle, and it should evolve into a fine Chassagne. 90-92 Neal Martin, Vinous.

Less toast and more width of fine, riper, citrus complexity – that’s a fine invitation. Broad, mineral, architectural wine – beautifully textured – not a bit aggressive indeed a little contemplative. Beautiful finishing width – blood orange and quince complexity. I love this! Bill Nanson, Burgundy Report.
