Joseph Drouhin, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Marquis de Laguiche 750ml 2018France, Burgundy
'This isn’t strictly speaking a domaine wine from Joseph Drouhin, but the contract with the Marquis de Laguiche is so long that it might as well be. Showing impressive concentration, yeasty, textured weight, delightful 25% new wood and notes of beeswax and lanolin, it finishes with freshness, minerality, commendable poise and some skin-tannin grip. Drinking Window 2022 - 2030.' – Tim Atkin MW, Decanter, 95/100
‘The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot 1er Cru (Marquis de Laguiche) comes from a vineyard that tends to produce millerandé berries. This has an intense, powerful bouquet with hints of menthol permeating the citrus fruit, developing a more fumé style with time in the glass. The palate is well balanced with hints of passion fruit and peach on the entry, becoming spicier and subtly Muscat-like toward the very satisfying, persistent finish. Excellent. 2022-2038.’ – Neal Martin, Vinous, 91-93/100
'Inviting, generous and spicy on the nose. Ripe citrus with a touch of almost-ripe apricot. Super-creamy and rounded in the mouth yet with good freshness. A little softer than the Genevrières and not as long but lovely balance already.' – Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20
