2018 Maison Evenstad, Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru Morgeot Chardonnay
Ken and Grace Evenstad, proprietors of world-renowned vineyards and wineries in Oregon and in Burgundy, craft Maison Even Evenstad to be a collectible and extremely limited bottling that showcases the richly diverse terroir found only in Burgundy. The Morgeot vineyard is located on a southeast-facing slope near the southern border of the appellation, featuring a chalky topsoil atop clay. This vineyard is noted for producing full-bodied wines and vibrant intensity. A floral and creamy bouquet leads to a mineral-driven and refreshing finish.
