Product Description:

"The 2013 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot is an expressive, generously textured, full- bodied Chassagne. It is made from 50-year- old vines located near the Abbey of Morgeot on a primarily stony, limestone soil. The gentle, south-east facing slope enhances ripening. Harvest is done entirely by hand. The grapes are meticulously sorted both in the vineyard and the winery to eliminate unhealthy fruit. They are immediately gently pressed in a pneumatic press to retain maximum fruit and aromatic extraction. The must is kept in tanks at low temperatures for 7 days before transferal to oak barrels, of which 30% are new, for alcoholic fermentation and maturation. Only native yeasts, present on the grapes skins, are used. The Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot matures in barrels on its lees with minimal battonage, or stirring of the lees, to ensure the wine’s freshness. Bottling takes place after about 15 months in accordance with the lunar cycle. This a powerful white Burgundy with a constitution that equips it for 5 or more years of aging." -Winery
