Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Morgeot" 2007, Bachelet-Ramonet
Bachelet-Ramonet is produced from a soil with relatively high clay content. The 2007 vintage was characterized by a very warm and precocious spring and a cool, damp summer. This produced wines with complex aromas and bright flavours. This Chassagne-Morgeot has lemon and lime aromas, it is fairly slight, a slip of a wine, vanilla, a waft of marshmallow. Racy, fresh, linear, bright, yellow, green, tangy and sharp. This is a typical wine from the vintage. Very good value when purchased at the domaine. Not in the top flight from a quality perspective. Clive Côates believes Morgeot is better suited to pinots due to the heavier clay soil. Photo shows Chassagne morgeot lieu-dit in April 2009.
