2017 Maison Evenstad, Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru Morgeot Clos Chareau Chardonnay 750ml
The fame of the Chassagne-Montrachet subregion derives from its proximity to the most famous Chardonnay vineyard in the world, the legendary Le Montrachet. The Morgeot vineyard is the largest of Chassagne-Montrachet’s Premier Cru vineyards. Our small parcel of very old vines, many planted 60 years ago, enjoys an excellent southeast exposure and deep drainage, leading to wines of remarkable intensity and body.
Reserved exclusively for our Chevalier d’Or Members due to its preciously small production, this wine evokes effusive honeysuckle and kiwi on the nose, with an explosive mid-palate of vibrant citrus fruit, minerality and tension. The acidity is lengthy and the finish breathtaking. A remarkable Chardonnay from a legendary vineyard.
