Tasting Notes

The Abbaye de Morgeot vineyard is situated in the southern part of the Morgeot 1er Cru. Morgeot, like many of the larger sites of the Côte d'Or, is in fact a collection of smaller terroirs. Some of these are richer in clay and were historically planted to red grapes. The lime-rich soils of the Abbaye de Morgeot lieu-dit, like Tête du Clos andFairendes, was always known as a white wine site and it continues to produce deep, layered yet very mineral expressions of Morgeot, hence the separate labelling. It has a soil of limestone and marl (chalky clay) with a reddish tinge, due to the presence of some iron in its soil. Leroux's 0.5-hectare parcel was planted in 1969, and the wine was matured in barriques, 20% new. We loved the sense of restrained power here. It will probably give the most immediate pleasure (of Leroux's Chassagne 1ers) but there is also plenty of age worthy depth and intensity on offer as well. Dense and rocky and with an almost powdery close, this is seriously good Morgeot.

'A deft but not invisible application of wood sets off notes various white orchard fruit, petrol and lychee nut aromas. The super-rich and lavishly proportioned flavors possess excellent concentration as well as plenty of dry extract that coats the palate on the sappy and reasonably persistent finale.
