The 2020 Chassagne-Montrachet Abbaye de Morgeot 1er Cru has a very harmonious bouquet, fine mineralité and tension, focused and displaying impressive energy. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity quite complex and poised with just the right amount of bitterness on the finish to urge you back. Very fine. This should age with style. Closure: Diam
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2045

Fullish, yellowish colour, while the bouquet shows a fair amount of oak. The full weight of Morgeot is lurking. It all works though. If you want a white Burgundy with significant volume of flesh without forcing the ripeness too far, this will do the job. Just the right balance here.
There is excellent volume if less minerality to the larger-scaled and more concentrated medium-bodied flavors that display focused power on the lingering bitter lemon-inflected finish that is more tightly wound than usual. Solid quality here in a package that should be accessible young but have no trouble repaying up to a decade of keeping.
