Winemaker Notes

This is a wonderful occasion to savor a great wine. Admirable light golden color. Intense and elegant aromas come to the fore. Hawthorn, apricot notes, evolve toward hints of blond tobacco. As the wine ages, there are nuances of dried fruit and rare spices. A silky texture and a subtle touch of tannin give a true personality to the wine. Remarkable aftertaste. A great white Burgundy!

Due to the refinement of their bouquet and the elegance of their flavors, these great white wines are unquestionably destined to accompany haute cuisine : shellfish cooked in a light wine sauce (court-bouillon) or any delicate fish (such as Dover sole) prepared grilled or poached.

Critical Acclaim

D95 Decanter
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.
This is ever-so-mildly phenolic in character (think olive or nut oil nuances) with additional notes of petrol, resin, white fruit compote and a dollop of toasty oak. The exceptionally rich, concentrated and powerful flavors also coat the mouth with dry extract that imparts a sappy texture to the solidly powerful and focused finish that delivers excellent length. There is a touch of backend warmth but overall, this is really quite good.

RP93 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Marquis de Laguiche is showing beautifully, wafting from the glass with aromas of golden orchard fruit, peach, confit citrus, honeycomb and toast. Medium to full-bodied, sumptuous and textural, it's satiny and enveloping, with a fleshy core underpinned by succulent acids, concluding with a nicely defined finish despite its gourmand, elegantly sun-kissed profile.
WS93 Wine Spectator
The vibrant character shines through, along with flavors of butterscotch, peach, vanilla and almond croissant. Lean and focused, with toasty oak and a tactile finish that picks up a mineral element. Drink now through 2025.
