Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Morgeot" 2007, Vincent & Sophie Morey
Tasted at the now annual Bufties tasting between Christmas and New Year in Islington, this was the first of 10 wines tasted blind. A medium to light yellow colour, limpid, possibly a few green tints. Immediate nose of butter, oak, lemon and orange. Heavily toasted nose. Rich, evolved, flattening out, lemon dominated. Enjoyable and very fresh due to the bright 2007 vintage characteristics. Identified blind as a 2010 Meursault indicating the youthfulness that 2007 can bring. Overly toasty but good overall. Scores 20/30 for a Chassagne 1er Cru.
