Morgeot is the largest Premier Cru in Chassagne-Montrachet; it is also one of the most structured and powerful parcel given the heavy soils. This white boasts wonderful aromas of citrus and ripe white peach with a soft buttery palate. The finish is really impressive as it should be for a first-class wine. A safe bet if you are looking for a high-end bottle of white Burgundy.
