Louis Jadot Chassagne Montrachet Morgeot Blanc Clos de la Chapelle Duc de Magenta 2017
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
While wood aging shows on the nose, the palate of this wine is more about generous fruit and intense acidity. Freshness is balanced by the mineral texture and the almost tannic character of the fruits. The wine will need some time, so drink from 2023.
The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot Clos de la Chapelle - a monopole of the domaine, released as usual under the Duc de Magenta label - has an attractive white peach and white-chocolate-tinged bouquet that gains intensity with aeration, displaying impressive definition and vigor. The palate is very well balanced with a fine line of acidity, more complex than the Abbaye de Morgeot and more nuanced toward the poised, mineral-driven finish. The slight nuttiness on the aftertaste completes a very impressive Chassagne.
Floral, fruit and toasty oak aromas and flavors highlight this spicy white. Tangy and intense, with a lingering aftertaste of smoky oak and lemon. Shows excellent balance and length. Drink now through 2026.
