Located south of the village of Chassagne-Montrachet, this varietal comes from three neighboring parcels near the Abbey of Morgeot. Dating back to year 864AD, Cistercian monks benefited from numerous donations in the 12th Century and built a communal farm and chapel in the vicinity of Morgeot. Subsequently, the adjacent appellation was named “La Chapelle.” The Morgeot soil is composed of heavy red clay and limestone, which produces wines of robust and rich characters.
It exhibits citrus, floral and white orchard fruit flavors, with medium toasted notes that are intertwined with vanilla and graphite accents. With a good capacity to age up to 20 years depending on the vintage, Morgeot wines from the Domaine tend to be less elegant in their youth but they are always fresh on the palate. Vines were planted in 1972.
