Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru - Morgeot (rouge)
Chassagne-Montrachet is known for its white wines but we must never forget the history. For many years, the Chassagne appellation produced red wines. This cuvée offers what I particularly appreciate in Burgundy. The color is subtle, the tannins are delicate, and the bouquet is intense and complex. In terms of style, I gladly compare it to the Pommard Clos des Poutures. As the notoriety of the red Chassagnes is not that of the whites, it is an excellent quality/price ratio of the domain that I recommend that you put in your cellar.

"Complex, saline, delicious! A delicate wine but nonetheless a great Chassagne. A little less sulphites used for this wine" Bill Nanson - Burgundy Report 2017
"Very attractive fragrance. Fine, light to medium-bodied with a fragrance that infuses the entire palate, largely with aromas of cherries, but also with light hints of raspberries and fresh strawberries" Jasper morris - Inside Burgundy 2018
